Katha Kv 17.50 Is following Noble Eight Fold Path also a suffering?

========
Theravādin: But the Ariyan Path, is that impermanent?

Hetuvādins: Yes.

Theravādin: Then is not that also Suffering?…

You say then that the Path is impermanent but not Suffering, while the Cause of Suffering is both impermanent and Suffering. It is impossible for you to maintain such a position… .

The non-doing of any evil,
The performance of what's skillful,
The cleansing of one's own mind:
This is the Buddhas' teaching.
