The Middle Way, or the Noble Eightfold Path, is the roadmap for Buddhist living. There are three sections of the Path that contain the eight “right” or “wise” ways to be, and each section is a platform for the next in a continuous process. Morality is the foundation for meditation, meditation is the foundation for wisdom, wisdom is the foundation for morality, and so forth. Each of the eight aspects supports and interacts with the other. As the name implies, they are folded into one another as a field manual for a meaningful spiritual life.
