SN.22.17. Yadanattāsutta ("That Which is Not-Self")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

“Mendicants, form is not-self. And what’s not-self should be truly seen with right understanding like this: ‘This is not mine, I am not this, this is not my self.’

Feeling is not-self …

Perception is not-self …

Choices are not-self …

Consciousness is not-self. And what’s not-self should be truly seen with right understanding like this: ‘This is not mine, I am not this, this is not my self.’

Seeing this … They understand: ‘… there is no return to any state of existence.’”
