Sutta 9

The Internal as Nonself in the Three Times

[4] [1136]

[1][pts] At Savatthi.

"Bhikkhus, the eye is nonself, both of the past and the future, not to speak of the present.

Seeing thus ... [5] ...

The mind is nonself ...

for its fading away and cessation."



Suttas 10-12

The External as Impermanent in the Three Times, Etc.

(These three suttas are identical with I9, but by way of the six external sense bases.)
