"The Noble Eightfold Path describes the way to the end of suffering...
It is a practical guideline to ethical and mental development with the goal of freeing the individual from attachments and delusions; and it finally leads to understanding the truth about all things."

You all might say that, I don’t. The kanji is the exact same as Yatsufusa, a dog from a Japanese novel who, long story short, is killed, along with a maiden, after a human dude decides to back out of an award promise. Eight beads are left behind which soar away, representing the eight virtues of Confucianism. These beads then reincarnate as eight samurai, all of whom have the character for “dog” in their names.
I use Eight Section Rune personally.
