10-Fold Path

Postby Dharmajim » Thu Jul 16, 2009 3:19 pm

Good Friends:

A friend of mine came across a reference to a "10-fold" path, with two additional aspects past the 8-fold path. These two additional aspects were referred to as "transmundane". I told my friend that I believe this appears in the Numerical Discourses; but I'm not sure exactly where (The Book of Tens?). If people have Sutta references for this that would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim

Hi Jim,

Ten factors found in Arahants:

1. Right Understanding

2. Right Thought

3. Right Speech

4. Right Action

5. Right Livelihood

6. Right Effort

7. Right Mindfulness

8. Right Concentration

9. Right Knowledge

10. Right Deliverance

(from Khuddakapatha 4)

The final two attained with enlightenment.
