Abstract

The Buddha described the Eightfold Path as a “Middle Way” that avoids two extremes: ‘The pursuit of sensual happiness in sensual pleasures, which is low, vulgar, ignoble, unbeneficial; and the pursuit of self-mortification, which is painful, ignoble, unbeneficial.’ Though the Buddha portrayed the Eightfold Path as a middle way between seeking sensual happiness and undergoing self-mortification, it clearly involves a rigorous discipline that is supposed to radically transform us. This path, the Buddha said, “leads to peace, to direct knowledge, to enlightenment, to Nibbāna.”
