Eightfold Path-Ethical Conduct-Right Action-

Eightfold Path

Ethical Conduct

Right Action

All of our lives we have been instructed to do the right thing. Often we are perplexed with what is the right thing. Ultimately, we must decide for ourselves what is right- but often our judgment is clouded by the defilements of the mind. While upon the Eight-Fold path, we must remember that our aim is to end our suffering. All we do, comes back to us in one way or another, eventually. What may be the right thing for the moment may not be the right thing for the next. Although this moment is the only one that exists, we must not fail to realize that within this moment- the past, present and future are contained. The truly right does not change from moment to moment. Look deep within your own mind, and you will know what is right. 

The Golden Rule in Buddhism is: Do no harm. 

The Buddha practiced the following code of conduct in his own life: 

1. Respect life 

2. Earn all that you have 

3. Control your desire, rather than allow desire to control you.
