two Paths (二道).

     A. (1) The Path with Discharg () is the worldly path taken by those with afflictions as they follow the first two of the Four Noble Truths and transmigrate in the Three Realms of Existence;

(2) the Path without Discharges (無漏道) is the holy path taken by those who follow the last two of the Four Noble Truths, in order to eradicate their afflictions and transcend the Three Realms (see discharge).

     B. (1) The Difficult Path (難行道) to Buddhahood is through repeated birth and death in the Three Realms of Existence;

     (2) the Easy Path (易行道) to Buddhahood is through rebirth in a Pure Buddha Land to train there.
