- Shouldn't everything be let go of? Nothing should be clung to. Sure, let it all go but not right away. In the Parable of the Raft (MN 22), the Buddha says that one is wise to gather material like reeds and lashes to make a raft to cross over from this dangerous side to that safe side of a river using one's own paddling hands and effort THEN letting go once that raft has served its purpose. The raft is the Dharma. It should be let go of, too, but only after it has served its purpose. You don't abandon the raft before you've crossed over to safety. You don't let go of the Doctrine and Discipline before achieving enlightenment and knowing-and-seeing for yourself.
