What Stephen Batchelor says about What the Buddha actuailly taught -

wnetnsr you end up embracing it or not - is undeniably stal'Uing, beautiful .and visionary ..Gotama, lie tells us, spoke of the middle way as "an ancient path travelled u:pon by people in the pasL.On following it he came upon the runsof 8i city with parks, ponds, ·graves, ramparts, a delightful place. He leils the king to renovate the city so it would become successfut, prosperous and 'fmed with people once again .. .Gotamadld not say the path red to nirvana but to the restoration 01 a city - his teachiing, the Dhamma.as 81 template for a civlllzafion."
He is now drawn to Buddhism "not because it has a more convincing explananon of the natura of reality than other re.ligions, but that it offers a meth.odol.ogy which m~ght actually wo~k in addressing the question of suffenng," Buddha's FO!Jf Noble: Trutths are "true not because they correspond! to something real somewhere, but because, when put into practice, they can enhance the quality of your [ife." Using the core teachings of Gotarna, he engages with tne world now "from tlie perspective of detachment, love and lucidity." Batcllel~()r began a fresh and close examination of 1l1ePaH canon, especially the 'Ka'iama Sutta;, for clues to what the Buddha nad actually said.

GotalTl~ seems to have only spoken of waking up loa contingent ground, not a withdraw·al to "a ttrneless mys\i~1 now butan unfflinch'ing encounter with the contingent world as it unravels moment 10 moment." Batchelor, attentiveas ever, is sharply aware that his is a personal reading. "I have to be alert to the tendency to project onto Gotama my own preferences and values," he notes; "Eve,ry Buddhist through history has constructed his or her own Gotarna.. I cannot

The insighns that Batchelor offers IJS as he travels deeper into the Pali texts are brilliant, dazzHng, and full ofllien::ing darity. I have always admired his prose ("Verses from The Centre": "living wITththe Devin, and his new work abounds in rich Insights and magnificent, clear writing. The metaphors Buddha used, says Batchelor, "seem to encourage a 'creation of a self than a renunciailon of a self rather than present the se~f as a fiction, Gotama presented it asa project to be realised - the functional, moral self that breathes and acts in the wortd ... This IS a useful way of looking at the self for a lay Buddhist person who works in the world than a renunciation model."

Elsewhere, he writes that "Awakening is not primarily a: ,engagement wnth a shifting, complex world ... it springs from sensitized to the peculiar texture of one's own and other's thai which is very tar trom God: the pain and anqulsh of 'embrace one's fate as an ephemeral but sentient being."

And this becomes the ground for unsentimental compassion and love. "As a way of life the middle path is an ongOing task ·of responsiveness :aJnd risk, grounded ina groundless grourld. Its twists and turns are as turbulent and unpredtctable as life itself."
