The Eightfold Path which is the way leading to the end of suffering is these eight factors:

  1. Right understanding,
  2. Right Thoughts,
  3. Right Speech,
  4. Right Action,
  5. Right livelihood,
  6. Right Effort,
  7. Right Mindfulness,
  8. Right Concentration.

It could be pointed out that the Eightfold Path is often taught as a "path" which one follows by developing each of the factors piece by piece until there are all perfected. In the Abhidhamma it is made clear that the Eightfold Path is in fact only momentary phenomena like everything else.

The Eightfold Path is not a "whole path" which one follows, but at the moment that a wholesome moment of wisdom (the wisdom that understands the true nature of things) arises then it is accompanied by the Eightfold Path factors as mental factors (cetasikas).
