Friends:

How can one ever Succeed, when Never having Started?

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, those who have neglected to begin this Noble 8-fold Way,
have failed to develop the Noble Method, which destroys Suffering!
While those who having indeed begun this Noble 8-fold Way, have
indeed also initiated the Noble Method, which destroys all Suffering!
And what, Bhikkhus, is this Noble 8-fold Way? It is simply this:

1: Right View  (sammā-ditthi)
2: Right Motivation  (sammā-sankappa)
3: Right Speech  (sammā-vācā)
4: Right Action  (sammā-kammanta)
5: Right Livelihood  (sammā-ājīva)
6: Right Effort  (sammā-vāyāma)
7: Right Awareness  (sammā-sati)
8: Right Concentration  (sammā-samādhi)

This Noble 8-fold Way ends in the Deathless Nibbāna!
