Book: The Five Principles of Middle Way Philosophy

Chapter: b. The Threefold Practice

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.44193


The Threefold Practice structure models the interaction of practices in a similar fashion to the Buddhist Threefold and Eightfold Paths, except that it takes more account of meaning, and is based on an incremental integration model, rather than a discontinuous enlightenment model. This makes it more compatible with support from scientific and systemic sources. The ways that all the practices address conflict should become clearer if we think of them in relation to all the five principles.
