The Eightfold Path is a journey walked in accordance with the Dharma (the law of nature, as expressed in Siddhārtha Gautama’s teachings), leading to the cessation of suffering and awakening.

Wisdom:
1. Appropriate view;
2. Appropriate intention;

Ethical conduct
3. Appropriate speech;
4. Appropriate action;
5. Appropriate livelihood;

Concentration
6. Appropriate effort;
