Sutta 19

Abhinanda Suttam 1

Delight 1

[13] [1139]

[1][pts] "Bhikkhus, one who seeks delight in the eye seeks delight in suffering.

One who seeks delight in suffering, I say, is not freed from suffering.

One who seeks delight in the ear ... in the nose ... in the tongue ... in the body ... in the mind seeks delight in suffering.

One who seeks delight in suffering, I say, is not freed from suffering.

"One who does not seek delight in the eye ... in the mind does not seek delight in suffering.

One who does not seek delight in suffering, I say, is freed from suffering."
