Right View

The Buddha taught that right understanding, or "right view," is the forerunner on the path to liberation. He assigned right view to the position of first factor of the noble eightfold path, the way to the end of suffering, and held that all the other factors of the path must be guided by right view toward the goal of his teaching, the cessation of suffering.

~Bhikkhu Bodhi, in The Buddha's Teaching on Social and Communal Harmony
