SN.35.158. Ajjhattaaniccanandikkhayasutta ("Focus, the Interior, and the End of Relishing")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Mendicants, properly attend to the eye. Truly see the impermanence of the eye. When a mendicant does this, they grow disillusioned with the eye. When relishing ends, greed ends. When greed ends, relishing ends. When relishing and greed end, the mind is said to be well freed.

Properly attend to the ear … nose … tongue … body … mind. Truly see the impermanence of the mind. When a mendicant does this, they grow disillusioned with the mind. When relishing ends, greed ends. When greed ends, relishing ends. When relishing and greed end, the mind is said to be well freed.”
