the way in aramaic - se7en - 11-20-2004

Can anyone help me with an aramaic word?

I was wondering if there was an aramaic word/expression equivalent to the Buddhist "The Way", similar to the early gnostic christians philosophy of following the way of Jesus' teachings. If anyone has any ideas on a word or phrase that either was used as such by early gnostic christians, or better yet, by Jesus himself, or at the very least aramaic word(s) or expressions, idioms, etc.. that portray this concept in word(s).

Thank you in advance for your help.

Shlama Shushan,

In Acts 9:2, the Aramaic word 'aorkha' is found and it means 'road, way' etc. "...that if he found any of this way"...etc. etc.
