Āryāṣṭāṅgamārga (आर्याष्टाङ्गमार्ग) refers to “eight members of the noble path” according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter XXXI.

Accordingly, the eight members are as follows:

  1. right view (samyagdṛṣṭi),
  2. right thought (samyaksaṃkalpa),
  3. right speech (samyagvāc),
  4. right action (samyakkarmānta),
  5. right livelihood (samyagājīva).
  6. right effort (samyagvyāyāma),
  7. right attentiveness (samyaksmṛti),
  8. right concentration (samyaksamādhi).

These eight right paths (samyagmārga) are arranged into three groups (skandha):

  1. the class of morality (śīlaskandha) [samyagvācsamyakkarmāntasamyagājīva],
  2. the class of concentration (samādhiskandha) [samyagvyāyāmasamyaksmṛtisamyaksamādhi],
  3. the class of wisdom (prajñāskandha) [samyagdṛṣṭisamyaksaṃkalpa].
