The Buddha's Noble Eightfold Path is divided into three divisions. Wisdom, Morality (Ethical Conduct) and Concentration. Right Action also referred to as Right Conduct is the fourth element of the Noble Eightfold Path and is related to Morality together with Right Speech and Right Livelihood.
Right Action is about training in Morality. Acting in such a way that is harmless for oneself and others. These Right Actions are also described by the Buddha Teachings in The Five Precepts. These are to refrain from:
Right Action is making a connection with Love and to prevent injustice. Practice of non-violence. Maybe one of the greatest examples in history is Ghandi who practiced non-violence as a true bodhisattva, someone who attained Enlightenment.
Right Action as part of The Noble Eightfold Path is respect for life. Awareness of our actions leads to consciousness. Consciousness of the fact that we can start with saving lives and helping others instead of facilitating the Suffering of the world.
Compassion and Love are not a luxury, they are a necessity. Without Compassion and Love humanity cannot survive states the Buddha. If you want others to be happy Practice Compassion. If you want to be happy yourself, Practice Compassion.
