Friends:

   Noble indeed is this 8-fold Way:



From right View comes right Motivation.
From right Motivation comes right Speech.
From right Speech comes right Action.
From right Action comes right Livelihood.
From right Livelihood comes right Effort.
From right Effort comes right Awareness.
From right Awareness comes right Concentration.
From right Concentration comes right Understanding.
From right Understanding comes right mental Release.
From right Release comes full Freedom, Bliss, and Peace!
Thus wide opened are the doors to the Deathless State...!
