The Buddha devised the Eightfold Path to help others free themselves from suffering. The path calls for eight practices: Right Views, Right Intent, Right Speech, Right Conduct, Right Work ,Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration.


Think about what each of these practices might mean. How could they be applied? Choose one practice and explain how you could apply it in your life.

The third step on the Eightfold Path of Buddhism is called Right Speech. According to Buddhism, we are not aware of our own speech, but the way we speak can affect our behaviour.

Buddhism, asks people to avoid lies, slander, harsh words, and frivolous speech.


What effect do these things have on other people? Write of a time when you heard someone lying or using harsh words. How did it affect you?
