Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

The 3 domains of the Noble 8-Fold Way:


A former husband
Visākha of the Nun (Bhikkhuni) Dhammadinnā once asked her:
Venerable Dhammadinnā, are these 3 domains of morality (sīla), concentration
(samādhi)
, and understanding (pañña) included in the Noble 8-fold Way, or is it
rather instead the Noble 8-fold Way that is included & divided into these 3 core
domains of the training?
These 3 domains, Visākha, are not included in the Noble 8-fold Way, but rather
the Noble 8-fold Way is included in those 3 domains like this:
Right speech, right action, and right livelihood: These 3 things are included
in the domain of morality.
Right effort, right awareness, & right concentration: These 2 things are included
in the domain of concentration..
Right view and right motivation: These 2 things are included
in the domain of understanding...

Noble is the 8-fold Way..
