What is right view? What is it's place on the path?

Hi ShanYin,

There are a number of references here:
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/index-su ... #eightfold

This is a good summary:
The Noble Eightfold Path
The Way to the End of Suffering
by
Bhikkhu Bodhi

Here are two suttas that I have found particularly helpful:

The Sammaditthi Sutta

and

The "Great Forty"


"Right View" is often presented a bit differently according to context, but these two made things clearer for me.

I think as we practice with persistence and diligence, employing the instrutions, we begin to see more and more the wisdom and truth in the teachings first hand, confirmed through direct experience, and our faith and confidence grows.
