Suffering - should be understood
Origin of suffering - should be abandoned
Cessation of suffering - should be realised
The way leadding to cessation of suffering - should be developed

It's good, but I found all the crossing arrows a bit difficult to follow.  Might it work better in list form?

I've tried this kind of chart myself, but it's very hard knowing what to leave off - there are so many lists!

Interesting is the fact that only one arrow on the whole chart point to Nibbana.

Actually there is 4.  :curtain:

Nibbana without residue
Nibbana with residue
Nibbana
and
Cessation of feeling and perception

But there is much more relations, it's just an evidence, so...

Regardless of what some Buddhists might believe about the monastic sangha (bhkkhu-sangha) is not the same as the sangha found in the Triple Gem (P., ti-ratana) of Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.  When we take refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, the sangha we are taking refuge in is not the monastic sangha but, instead, the disciple sangha (P., ariya-sangha; S., arya-sangha).  The monastic sangha and the disciple sangha are, in fact, quite different.  Walpola Râhula helps to shed more light on the Triple Gem sangha:

Quote
"The Sangha of the Triple-Jewel which is called sâvaka-sangha ("the Community of Disciples"), consisting of those eight holy person indiscriminately from all four categories of the Buddha's disciples, both lay and monastic, male and female, may be considered as the "Spiritual Sangha" (World Buddhism, Vol. XII, No. 11, July 1974, p. 330) (Bold added for emphasis.)
