Sutta 146 [WP: #147]

Pathama Sappaya Suttam

Suitable for Attaining Nibbana 1

[133] [1212]

[1][pts] "Bhikkhus, I will teach you the way that is suitable for attaining Nibbana.

Listen to that. ...

"And what, bhikkhus, is the way that is suitable for attaining Nibbana?

Here, a bhikkhu sees the eye as impermanent, he sees forms as impermanent, he sees eye-consciousness as impermanent, he sees eye-contact as impermanent, he sees as impermanent whatever feeling arises with eye-contact as condition, whether pleasant or painful or neither-painful-nor-pleasant.

"He sees the ear as impermanent ... [134] ...

He sees the mind as impermanent, he sees mental phenomena as impermanent, he sees mind-consciousness as impermanent, he sees mind-contact as impermanent, he sees as impermanent whatever feeling arises with mind-contact as condition, whether pleasant or painful or neither-painful-nor-pleasant.

"This, bhikkhus, is the way that is suitable for attaining Nibbana."

Suitable for Attaining Nibbana 4

[1][pts] "Bhikkhus, I will teach the way that is suitable for attaining Nibbana.

Listen to that. ...

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

'... there is no more for this state of being.'

"This, bhikkhus, is the way that is suitable for attaining Nibbana."
