    Smile "eight-fold path"

    Dear sirs,

    I am writing to ask this question.

    Best among paths is the eight-fold path: right view, right intensions, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration. This path will lead to wisdom, ethics, and awareness.
    I know the eight-fold path here means the things followed this phrase but how to explain the "eight-fold path" literally?

    Thanks very much:)

    Emily

    The eight-fold path has eight parts to it. That seems to me to be the literal interpretation. (Am I missing something?)
