SN.35.157. Bāhiranandikkhayasutta ("The Exterior and the End of Relishing")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Mendicants, sights really are impermanent. A mendicant sees that they are impermanent: that’s their right view. Seeing rightly, they grow disillusioned. When relishing ends, greed ends. When greed ends, relishing ends. When relishing and greed end, the mind is said to be well freed.

Sounds … Smells … Tastes … Touches … Thoughts really are impermanent. A mendicant sees that they are impermanent: that’s their right view. Seeing rightly, they grow disillusioned. When relishing ends, greed ends. When greed ends, relishing ends. When relishing and greed end, the mind is said to be well freed.”
