SN.22.111. Chandappahānasutta ("Giving Up Desire")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

“Mendicants, you should give up any desire, greed, relishing, and craving for form. Thus that form will be given up, cut off at the root, made like a palm stump, obliterated, and unable to arise in the future.

You should give up any desire, greed, relishing, and craving for feeling … perception … choices … consciousness. Thus that consciousness will be given up, cut off at the root, made like a palm stump, obliterated, and unable to arise in the future.”
