Fistfull of Sand & The Light of Discernment is based on spiritual teachings by Phra Ajaan Suwat Suvaco. The first part, Fistfull of Sand was given during a two week retreat in 1989 with about 100 people. Throughout the retreat, Ajaan Suwat led small group interviews in the afternoon and then met with all the gathered retreatants in the evening, either to give a Dhamma talk or to answer questions. It was all recorded and transcribed in this book. This edition of Fistful of Sand also includes the talk, “The Strategy of a Peaceful Mind,” and the collection of Ajaan Suwat’s talks, The Light of Discernment, that was printed in his honor after his death on April 5, 2002.
