SN.52.7. Taṇhākkhayasutta ("The Ending of Craving")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

There Venerable Anuruddha addressed the mendicants: “Reverends, mendicants!”

“Reverend,” they replied. Anuruddha said this:

“Reverends, when these four kinds of mindfulness meditation are developed and cultivated they lead to the ending of craving. What four? It’s when a mendicant meditates by observing an aspect of the body … feelings … mind … principles—keen, aware, and mindful, rid of desire and aversion for the world. When these four kinds of mindfulness meditation are developed and cultivated they lead to the ending of craving.”
