SN.27.3. Viññāṇasutta ("Consciousness")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

“Mendicants, desire and greed for eye consciousness, ear consciousness, nose consciousness, tongue consciousness, body consciousness, or mind consciousness is a corruption of the mind. When a mendicant has given up mental corruption in these six cases, their mind inclines to renunciation. A mind imbued with renunciation is declared to be capable of directly knowing anything that can be realized.”
