SN.23.9. Chandarāgasutta ("Desire and Greed")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

When Venerable Rādha was seated to one side, the Buddha said to him:

“Rādha, 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.”
