From these eight noble paths, we can understand about life & universe and then it is helping us to destroying our lust to unnecessary bonds. There also have achieving right wisdom & it finally help to get right freedom. So this is the great finding of all Lord Buddha. In critical rebirth cycle, lust & ignorance mainly help to bond to suffering from pains, sick, meeting negative people (where meet angry), losing loved people, what we hope things can't get in easy way, mental problems & finally death. Person who liked to achieve enlighten state goes in six paths as below mentioned methods :

  • Person has devotion that six organs inside the our body are unsteady & those are created cause of past karma collected in infinitive lifetimes ago, so he or she called as Saddhanusari or Devotion-Hood.
  • Person understands that six organs are unsteady & created cause of past karma collected in infinitive lifetimes, so he or she called as Dharmanusari or Dharma-Hood.

Also they reduce or make powerless - great bonds to five senses & great ill-will or violence nature in mind which help to born in human world. They are called as Sakudragami, means one-returning to lust world. They rebirth in upper heavens such as Tusitha.
  • People are non-returning to lust world called as Anagami and only born in five great heavens of pure lands. People attain this states remove - accepting theory of soul, doubt about Buddhism, follow other religious customs & mere traditional practicing. Also completely remove : great bonds to five senses, great ill-will & violence nature in mind. But they still have bonds to material & non-material worlds, proud, swaying state of mind via thoughts & thinking.
  • Buddhist monks who attain Arahant or fully enlighten state, they are not rebirth & finished all bonds in rebirth cycle. As same as flame of oil lamp disappear after fade off, their consciousness is disappear. This is final goal of all Buddhist people. Nibbana, Nirvana, Enlightening & Noble Freedom means this state.
