The Noble Eightfold Path
The way is the Noble Eightfold Path, which can be divided into three main groups:
Knowledge and Wisdom (panna)
Ethical Action (sila)
Composure and Meditation (samadhi)
The many teachings of the Buddha are to be understood in the broadest sense as explanations of the Four Noble Truths. The practice and implementation of the Noble Eightfold Path is not to be understood as a hierarchical form, rather as a concurrent practice of all its elements.
