SN.22.120. Saṁyojaniyasutta ("Things Prone To Being Fettered")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

“Mendicants, I will teach you the things that are prone to being fettered, and the fetter. Listen …

What are the things that are prone to being fettered? And what is the fetter?

Form is something that’s prone to being fettered. The desire and greed for it is the fetter.

Feeling …

Perception …

Choices …

Consciousness is something that’s prone to being fettered. The desire and greed for it is the fetter.

These are called the things that are prone to being fettered, and this is the fetter.”
