Āryāṣṭāṅgikamārga (आर्याष्टाङ्गिकमार्ग) or Āryāṣṭāṅgamārga refers to the “noble eightfold path” as defined in the Dharma-saṃgraha (section 50), itself forming part of the “thirty-seven things on the side of awakening” (bodhipākṣika-dharma). The Dharma-samgraha (Dharmasangraha) is an extensive glossary of Buddhist technical terms in Sanskrit (e.g., ārya-aṣṭāṅgika-mārga). The work is attributed to Nagarjuna who lived around the 2nd century A.D.
