Right Effort

10/30/2018
More
Reflect on how Right View, Right Effort and Right Mindfulness "run and circle" around the path factors of Right View, Intention, Speech, Action and Livelihood (MN 117). What happens if one of these three are not present? How does this work in the day to day choices of acting from wisdom and compassion, or acting from greed, hatred and delusion?
