SN.1.24. Manonivāraṇasutta ("Shielding the Mind")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Whatever you’ve shielded the mind from
can’t cause you suffering.
So you should shield the mind from everything,
then you’re freed from all suffering.”

“You needn’t shield the mind from everything.
When the mind is under control,
you need only shield the mind
from where the bad things come.”
