Noble Eightfold Path, Talk 2: Right Understanding

Right Understanding: The First Spoke of the Wheel

If you can imagine that the Noble 8-Fold Path is a kind of ancient spiritual GPS that the Buddha mapped out for us … then the first spoke in the wheel – Right View (samma dhitti) is like being able to zoom our inner screen all the way out to its fullest so that we can see the vast scope of the terrain, and therefore gain a clearer understanding of the path we’re walking on, where we’re headed, and why. During this talk, Shell explores this 1st Spoke of the Wheel of Dharma. (*This is Talk #2 in a series on the Buddha's Noble Eightfold Path, which begins with a Summary Talk)"
