Eight Fold Path – Wisdom

It is about aim and direction, the need for liberation from suffering,

  • by uprooting ignorance
  • by understanding (or awakening)
  • by seeing things (as they really are)

Having a right view is very important –  it is like a guide (or map) as we practice showing:

  • starting point
  • destination and
  • successive phases passed

To practice without a right view, risks getting ‘lost’ (or no direction).  As an analogy, if we want to drive to a place, we must have a road map or advice from experience driver to have a general idea which direction to go.

Right view involves the correct understanding of the entire dharma/teacing of the Buddha
