The Threefold Division of The Path

“And are the three aggregates [of virtue, concentration, discernment] included under the noble eightfold path, or is the noble eightfold path included under the three aggregates?”

“The three aggregates are not included under the noble eightfold path, but the noble eightfold path is included under the three aggregates. Right speech, right action, & right livelihood come under the aggregate of virtue. Right effort, right mindfulness, & right concentration come under the aggregate of concentration. Right view & right resolve come under the aggregate of discernment.”
