[1][bodh] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One addressed the brethren, saying:

"Brethren."

"Lord," responded those brethren to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One thus spake:

"I will teach you, Brethren,
a way that is helpful for Nibbana.

Do ye listen to it.

And what, Brethren, is that way?

Herein, Brethren, a brother
regards the eye as without the self.

He regards objects as without the self.
