Urge for Sensing blocks the Way to Freedom:


At Savatthi the Blessed Buddha said this:
Desire & lust for the ability* to see forms obstructs & corrupts the mind!
Desire and lust for the ability to hear sounds;
Desire and lust for the ability to smell smells;
Desire and lust for the ability to taste flavours;
are also obstructing corruptions for the mind!
Bhikkhus, the desire and lust for the ability to speculation on mental objects
is also an obstructing corruption for the mind! When a bhikkhu has overcome
and all left these obstructing mental corruptions, his mind inclines towards
inward withdrawal! A mind prepared thus by withdrawal becomes fit and open
for those higher mental states, that are to be realized by direct experience
and immediate knowledge.

Note*:
This can & should be freely exchanged, expanded & enhanced by these objects:
Visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, tactile & mental consciousness, contact,
feeling born of sense contact, perception born of contact, intention for, and
craving for whatever sensual object existing or even just imagined ...


Sense desire is variegated and always wants and seeks new ways!

Any kind of greed, desire, & lust has obvious side effects of Pain!

Blissful is being without passions in this world,
Blissful is the overcoming of all sense-desires!
Udana II, 1
