The Noble Eightfold path

A concise, clear, and thorough account of the Noble Eightfold Path. Explains each path-factor from the angle both of theory and practice, with a final chapter on the unity of the Buddhist path and its culmination in enlightenment.

A quote from the preface by the author: "The essence of the Buddha's teaching can be summed up in two principles: the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path.

The first covers the side of doctrine, and the primary response its elicits is understanding; the second covers the side of discipline, in the broadest sense of that word, and the primary response it calls for is practice."
