      Dear Friends,

      MN 44. Cuu.lavedalla Sutta
      (translated by Bhikkhu Nanamoli and Bhikkhu Bodhi)

      (THE NOBLE EIGHTFOLD PATH)

      [8] 462. "Katamo panaayye, ariyo a.t.tha"ngiko maggo"ti?

      "Ayameva kho, aavuso visaakha, ariyo a.t.tha"ngiko maggo, seyyathida.m sammaadi.t.thi sammaasa"nkappo sammaavaacaa sammaakammanto sammaaaajiivo sammaavaayaamo sammaasati sammaasamaadhii"ti.

      [8] "9. Lady, what is the Noble Eightfold Path?"

      "Friend Visaakha, it is just this Noble Eightfold Path; that is, right view, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration."

      ----------------------

      [9] "Ariyo panaayye, a.t.tha"ngiko maggo sa"nkhato udaahu asa"nkhato"ti?

      "Ariyo kho, aavuso visaakha, a.t.tha"ngiko maggo sa"nkhato"ti .

      [9] 10."Lady, is the Noble Eightfold Path conditioned (sa"nkhato) or unconditioned (asa"nkhato)?"

      "Friend Visaakha, the Noble Eightfold Path is conditioned (sa"nkhato)."

      ----------------------

      [10] "Ariyena nu kho, ayye, a.t.tha"ngikena maggena tayo khandhaa sa"ngahitaa udaahu tiihi khandhehi ariyo a.t.tha"ngiko maggo sa"ngahito"ti?

      "Na kho, aavuso visaakha, ariyena a.t.tha"ngikena maggena tayo khandhaa sa"ngahitaa; tiihi ca kho, aavuso visaakha, khandhehi ariyo a.t.tha"ngiko maggo sa"ngahito. Yaa caavuso visaakha, sammaavaacaa yo ca sammaakammanto yo ca sammaaaajiivo ime dhammaa siilakkhandhe sa"ngahitaa. Yo ca sammaavaayaamo yaa ca sammaasati yo ca sammaasamaadhi ime dhammaa samaadhikkhandhe sa"ngahitaa. Yaa ca sammaadi.t.thi yo ca sammaasa"nkappo, ime dhammaa pa~n~naakkhandhe sa"ngahitaa"ti.

      [10] 11. "Lady, are the three aggregates included by the Noble Eightfold Path, or is the Noble Eightfold Path included by the three aggregates?" [Note 463]

      "The three aggregates are not included by the Noble Eightfold Path, friend Visaakha, but the Noble Eightfold Path is included by the three aggregates. Right speech, right action, and right livelihood - these states are included in the aggregate of virtue (siilakkhandhaa). Right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration - these states are included in the aggregate of concentration (samaadhikkhandhaa). Right view and right intention - these states are included in the aggregate of wisdom (pa~n~naakkhandhaa)."

      [Note 463] The word khandha here has a different meaning than in the more common context of the five aggregates affected by clinging. It here refers to a body of training principles, the three divisions of the Noble Eightfold Path into virtue (siila), concentration (samaadhi), and wisdom (pa~n~na).
