By suggestion and out of common sense I thought it a good time to start a thread on the Noble Eightfold Path. We often speak of the Four Nobler Truths, the Five Precepts, Meditation and so forth, but really haven't delved much into the Noble Eightfold Path. In my reasoning at least, this is a majority part of the practice, as it is integral to the fundamental Four Noble Truths, being the road map tot he path out of samsara. Many many dhamma related questions can often be answered by one's ownself in daily decision making by having even a basic understanding of this Noble Eightfold Path.
My hope is that this post can be migrated into a new forum dealing with the Noble Eightfold Path as its focus. I will be presenting the factors of the path one by one, much as the Five Precepts have been presented as individual topics elsewhere on this site. I will be using Ven. Bikkhu Bodhi's book "The Noble Eightfold Path" as reference, however, anyone is welcome to add to rebut or refute the posts using teachings from other teachers (i.e. Ajahn Brahmali, another world renown Buddhist and Pali Scholar).
The first post regarding the first factor of the path shall follow shortly in another thread. May all beings be well and happy.
