"The Tradition Of The Path..."

"The philosophical and spiritual traditions of the East created a very vivid and apt conception called the path.
The Path means a particular way of living and behaving conditioned by a code of ethics and a system of technical instruction governing different aspects of everyday life.
Observing the rules of the Path was supposed to help in achieving the higher levels of wisdom.
I dare to express the conviction the mountaineering, by reason of the remarkable qualities it contains, may turn into a precious method of spiritual and physical growth.
Referring to the tradition of the Path, I would like to call this method, 'The Path of the Mountain'...".  V. Kurtyka
