[54] [1164]

[1][pts] Sitting to one side, the Venerable Ananda said to the Blessed One:

"Venerable sir, it would be good if the Blessed One would teach me the Dhamma in brief, so that, having heard the Dhamma from the Blessed One, I might dwell alone, withdrawn, diligent, ardent, and resolute."

"What do you think, Ananda, is the eye permanent or impermanent?"

"Impermanent, venerable sir."

(Complete as in I32, down to "there is no more for this state of being.")
