Now, Right Action, let me tell you, is of two kinds:
from killing, from stealing, and from unlawful sexual intercourse - this
is called the "Mundane Right Action, which yields worldly fruits and
brings good results.
But the abhorrence of the practice of this
three-fold wrong action, the abstaining, withholding, refraining
therefrom - the mind being holy, being turned away from the world, and
conjoined with the path, the holy path being pursued-: this is
called the "Ultramundane Right Action," which is not of the world, but
is ultramundane, and conjoined with the paths.
Now, in understanding wrong action as wrong, and right action as
right, one practices Right Understanding [1st step];
and in making
efforts to overcome wrong action, and to arouse right action, one
practices Right Effort [6th step];
and in overcoming wrong action
with attentive mind, and dwelling with attentive mind in possession of
right action, one practices Right Attentiveness [7th step].
there are three things that accompany and follow upon right action,
namely: right understanding, right effort, and right attentiveness.
