On the Path: An Anthology on the Noble Eightfold Path drawn from the Pāli Canon
by Ṭhānissaro Bhikkhu. (revised July 28, 2017)


This book aims to provide a well-rounded picture of the noble eightfold path for people who are interested in taking guidance from the earliest extant records of the Buddha’s teachings on how to reach the end of suffering and stress. The format is that of a discussion and analysis of each element of the path followed by pertinent sutta excerpts, similar to Wings to Awakening. The cross-references to the suttas are also hyperlinked to the new sutta pages on this site.

...As the reader of this book, you have to supply the internal source if you’re to get the most out of it. As the compiler, I’ve tried to be as faithful as possible in selecting and translating the passages so that they’ll be of most use as the “voice of another.” At the same time, because I am assuming appropriate attention on your part, I have focused the introductory material on practical issues, and have avoided the many academic controversies that have accreted on the topic of the noble eightfold path over the centuries...
