The Eightfold Path is the most widely known formulation of the Buddha's teaching. It is ancient, reaching back to the Buddha's very first discourse, and it is highly venerated as a unique treasury of wisdom and practical guidance. The teaching of the Eightfold Path challenges us to grasp the implications of that vision, and asks us to transform ourselves in its light. Like the teaching itself, this work covers every aspect of life.

"'Cease to be evil, learn to do good, purify the heart.' Sounds simple, doesn't it? Yet the Buddhist path to enlightenment, as this fascinating work informs us, is fraught with the distractions of 'mundane conditioned existence.' Sangharakshita spent 20 years in India before returning to Britain to found the Western Buddhist Order, its mission to make the creed accessible to his compatriots. So while this text, read with calm authority by a member of the order, is a scholarly distillation of many strands of teaching, it is also probably the best 'life coaching' manual you'll ever read, the key to living with clarity and awareness. Only follow the path, advised the Buddha, and you will be free." (The Sunday Times)
