from the esoteric tradition by G de Purucker



THE NOBLE EIGHTFOLD PATH

1. Recognition of the truth of the preceding four verities.

2. Holding the objective to be attained clearly in the mind, holding it firm, with discrimination.

3. Right words, or controlled and governed speech at a times and in all places.

4. Controlled and governed action at all times and in all places.

5. Appropriate and honorable means of livelihood.

6. An inflexible will to achieve the objective visioned.

7. An eager intellect, always open for a greater truth, and ready to learn; and the cultivation of a strong and retentive memory.

8. An unveiled spiritual perception, combined with great care in thinking, which is the keynote of all the preceding items, and which expressed in other words means right meditation with a tranquil mind into which wisdom thus enters.

On page 117 of Esoteric Tradition is what Bella quotes, preceded by this:


What are some of these? The impermanence of all manifested existence or existences; that in consequence of the impermanence and illusory nature of all manifested beings and things, pain, suffering, sorrow, are native to all beings who live in this illusion, or maya; yet there is a Way leading to the cessation of all this sorrow, of all this pain, and of all individual illusions about them; and this Way is eightfold in character. It is commonly called in Europe 'the Noble Eightfold Path,' based upon Four Fundamental Truths or Verities. What are, first, these Four Noble Truths:

The noble truth about sorrow and pain;
The noble truth about the cause of sorrow and pain;
The noble truth about the cessation of sorrow and pain;
The noble truth about the path that leads to this cessation.
These four truths may be somewhat paraphrased as follows:

1. Suffering and sorrow exist in all manifested beings.
2. There is a cause for the suffering and the sorrow that exist.
3. There is a way to render extinct the causes of the suffering and sorrow that exist.
4. There is a path, by following which the causes of the suffering and sorrow that exist are rendered extinct. This path consists in a continuous changing to betterment of the factors or samskaras of our consciousness. These factors are eight and comprise the Noble Eightfold Path.

This is one of the first things I truly learned about as part of the Chan Buddhism of the Shaolin, along with the Four Noble Truths. Very good.

It is interesting to note how theosophy and Chan Buddhism of the Shaolin, are similar.
