“It is through not understanding, not penetrating four things that I, disciples, as well as you have wandered so long through the long rounds of rebirth. What four? (1) The Noble Truth of Suffering, (2) The Noble Truth of the Origin of Suffering, (3) The Noble Truth of the Cessation of Suffering, and (4) The Noble Truth of the Way Leading to the Cessation of Suffering.”

(SN 12.65: Nagara Sutta) “It is just as if a man, traveling along a wilderness track, were to see an ancient path, an ancient road, traveled by people of former times. He would follow it. Following it, he would see an ancient city, an ancient capital inhabited by people of former times, complete with parks, groves, & ponds, walled, delightful. He would go to address the king or the king's minister, saying, 'Sire, you should know that while traveling along a wilderness track I saw an ancient path... I followed it... I saw an ancient city, an ancient capital... complete with parks, groves, & ponds, walled, delightful. Sire, rebuild that city!' The king or king's minister would rebuild the city, so that at a later date the city would become powerful, rich, & well-populated, fully grown & prosperous.

In the same way I saw an ancient path, an ancient road, traveled by the Rightly Self-awakened Ones of former times. And what is that ancient path, that ancient road, traveled by the Rightly Self-awakened Ones of former times? Just this Noble Eightfold path: (1) right view, (2) right thought, (3) right speech, (4) right action, (5) right livelihood, (6) right effort, (7) right mindfulness and (8) right concentration. That is the ancient path, the ancient road, traveled by the Rightly Self-awakened Ones of former times. I followed that path. Following it, I came to direct knowledge of aging & death, direct knowledge of the origination of aging & death, direct knowledge of the cessation of aging & death, direct knowledge of the path leading to the cessation of aging & death. I followed that path. Following it, I came to direct knowledge of birth... becoming... clinging... craving... feeling... contact... the six sense media... name-&-form... consciousness, direct knowledge of the origination of consciousness, direct knowledge of the cessation of consciousness, direct knowledge of the path leading to the cessation of consciousness. I followed that path.

Following it, I came to direct knowledge of fabrications, direct knowledge of the origination of fabrications, direct knowledge of the cessation of fabrications, direct knowledge of the path leading to the cessation of fabrications. Knowing that directly, I have revealed it to monks, nuns, male lay followers & female lay followers, so that this holy life has become powerful, rich, detailed, well-populated, wide-spread, proclaimed among celestial & human beings.”

Right View is the first of the eight path factors in the Noble Eightfold Path.

“And what is right view? Knowledge with regard to stress, knowledge with regard to the origination of stress, knowledge with regard to the cessation of stress, knowledge with regard to the way of practice leading to the cessation of stress: This is called right view.” – DN 22

Path to Immortality (Nirvana) is the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path that begins with Right Understanding (Sammā-diṭṭhi) and ends with Right Concentration (Sammā-samādhi). It is also called the Middle Path, and also the Ancient Path that the Buddha rediscovered in 6th century B.C. in His desperate search for the highest good and the highest truth while he was still an unenlightened being as young Prince Siddhartha Gautama. Following this Path the young Prince Siddhartha Gautama reached such a one-pointed state of mind, so subtle and sensitive, that He gained “Reminiscence of Past Lives” (Pubbenivāsānussati-ñāṇa), “Clairvoyance” (Dibba-cakkhu), “Knowledge of Extinction of Cankers” (Āsavakkhaya-ṇāña), and many more supernatural powers and abilities (Iddhi-vidhā). He declared: “The eye was born, knowledge was born, wisdom was born, science was born, light was born with regard to things never hear before.” He became a Fully Enlightened One. He directly knew and saw the illusory nature of the self and the cosmos, its origin and its cessation. This enabled Him to unlock the Eternal Salvation from Birth, Sickness, Aging and Death. He attained the Immortality, Nirvana.

Having himself attained the Immortality He taught that Path to Immortality to the world for the benefit, welfare and happiness of all beings, out of compassion for all beings.

The Path to Immortality is as follows:

1. Right View/Understanding (Sammā-diṭṭhi)
2. Right Thought/Intention (Sammā-saṅkappa)
3. Right Speech (Sammā-vācā)
4. Right Action (Sammā-kammanta)
5. Right Livelihood (Sammā-ājīva)
6. Right Effort/Endeavour (Sammā-vāyāma)
7. Right Mindfulness (Sammā-sati)
8. Right Concentration (Sammā-samādhi)
