Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Mendicants, without directly knowing and completely understanding sights … sounds … smells … tastes … touches … thoughts, without dispassion for them and giving them up, you can’t end suffering.

By directly knowing and completely understanding sights … sounds … smells … tastes … touches … thoughts, having dispassion for them and giving them up, you can end suffering.”
