Sutta about the Eighfold Path

Post by pedro1985 »

Hello, I am studying suttas since recently and I am wondering if there
are any Suttas that are about the Eightfold Path in particular.

Hopefully you can make me some recommendation of which sutta to read
about the Eightfold Path.

Thanks in advance.

Maha-cattarisaka Sutta
Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta
Culavedalla Sutta
Nagara Sutta
Bhaya Sutta
Magga-vibhanga Sutta
Mahaparinibbana Sutta
And the Blessed One spoke, saying:
"In whatsoever Dhamma and Discipline, Subhadda, there is not found the Noble Eightfold Path, neither is there found a true ascetic of the first, second, third, or fourth degree of saintliness.
But in whatsoever Dhamma and Discipline there is found the Noble Eightfold Path, there is found a true ascetic of the first, second, third, and fourth degrees of saintliness.
Now in this Dhamma and Discipline, Subhadda, is found the Noble Eightfold Path; and in it alone are also found true ascetics of the first, second, third, and fourth degrees of saintliness.
Devoid of true ascetics are the systems of other teachers.
But if, Subhadda, the Bhikkhus live righteously, the world will not be destitute of Arahats.

With no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.
