SN.27.10. Khandhasutta ("The Aggregates")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

“Mendicants, desire and greed for form, feeling, perception, choices, or consciousness is a corruption of the mind. When a mendicant has given up mental corruption in these five cases, their mind inclines to renunciation. A mind imbued with renunciation is declared to be capable of directly knowing anything that can be realized.”

The Linked Discourses on corruptions are complete.
