Although the path is numbered sequentially, it is generally not seen as as series of steps, but instead (in modern terms) a “holistic lifestyle” which is to be developed more or less simultaneously, all linked together and each helping the cultivation of the others and, in turn, helped by the others. For that reason, it is represented as the eight spokes of the Dharma Wheel, each supporting the entirety.

In the Zen schools, Zazen is valued as key, nurturing all of the path … yet all the spokes, in turn, nurture Zazen.

The eight elements are typically divided into three groups… and we’ll talk about each of these elements over the coming days.

Wisdom (Sanskrit: prajŮa)
1. Right View
2. Right Intention

Ethical Conduct (Sanskrit: sila)
3. Right Speech
4. Right Action
5. Right Livelihood

Mental Discipline (Sanskrit: samadhi)
6. Right Effort
7. Right Mindfulness
8. Right Concentration

Yes indeed, very easy to follow, and they are worth going over more than one time, since they are the foundations of our practice. :encouragement:

When the eight elements are the spokes of the wheel, zazen is the hub, isnít it?

Thank you for these Jundo. One can read about the basics, but having an introduction like this from a teacher is invaluable.

Thank you Jundo, wonderful to get back to the basics sometimes! Instead of the Wheel of Dharma I'd like to see a Pianica of Dharma sometimes too.
