Publisher's Summary

The Noble Eightfold Path is one of the most important teachings in Buddhism. In this series of eight lectures, given originally in 1965, Urgyen Sangharakshita introduces each stage, from right understanding to right meditation, explaining the deeper implications involved.

Sangharakshita, the London-born Buddhist teacher, is one of the most influential figures in the development of Buddhism in the West. The founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order(originally called the Western Buddhist Order), he sought to draw on all the Buddhist traditions and produce a new synthesis with particular relevance to modern Western society - a view that underpins his teaching of the Dharma.

This groundbreaking series of lectures was given in London in 1965 and is presented here in a newly mastered recording which has dealt with many - though not all - the extraneous noises. It remains one of the clearest and most direct accounts of the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path.

Excellent review of the topic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. The author is clearly knowledgable and is well versed in the western as well as buddhist philosophy.

What does Urgyen Sangharakshita bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The lecture has a few more 'small detours' that are not captured in the written text. I found them to be helpful at times.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. You want to sip this one slowly.

Any additional comments?

Read the PDF in parallel to listening.
