Right effort

One of the branches of the eightfold noble path. (a) For ordinary beings, as part of the higher training in absorbed concentration, effort to direct the energies away from harmful, destructive thoughts and toward the development of beneficial qualities instead. (b) For aryas, one of the three branches that serve as antidotes – namely, meditation on the sixteen aspects of the four noble truths and on their lack of the two kinds of impossible "souls" (their selflessness of persons and selflessness of phenomena) over long periods of time, as an antidote to rid the mind of what an accustoming pathway mind gets rid of.
