--------------

The raft parable is one of the best known of the Buddha's many parables and similes. Even people who know little else about Buddhism have heard the one about the raft (or, in some versions, a boat).

The Story

A man traveling along a path came to a great expanse of water. As he stood on the shore, he realized there were dangers and discomforts all about. But the other shore appeared safe and inviting. The man looked for a boat or a bridge and found neither. But with great effort he gathered grass, twigs and branches and tied them all together to make a simple raft. Relying on the raft to keep himself afloat, the man paddled with his hands and feet and reached the safety of the other shore. He could continue his journey on dry land.

Now, what would he do with his makeshift raft? Would he drag it along with him or leave it behind? He would leave it, the Buddha said. Then the Buddha explained that the dharma is like a raft. It is useful for crossing over but not for holding onto, he said.

This simple story has inspired more than one interpretation. Was the Buddha saying that the dharma is a kind of provisional appliance that can be discarded when one is enlightened? That is how the parable often is understood.

Others argue (for reasons explained below) that it is really about how to properly hold, or understand, the Buddha's teaching. And occasionally someone will cite the raft parable as an excuse to ignore the Eightfold Path, the Precepts, and the rest of the Buddha's teachings altogether, since you're going to ditch them, anyway..
