Friends:

Sense-Organs also implies Sensing Suffering!

At Savatthi the Blessed Buddha said this:
Bhikkhus, the arising, emergence, maintenance, creation, & manifestation
of the Eye the Ear, the Nose, the Tongue, and the Body is also the arising
of much Suffering, the continuation of disease, the very manifestation of
ageing, decay and Death itself!
The ceasing, all subsiding, and complete passing away of the Eye, the Ear,
the Nose, the Tongue, and the Body is also the Final Ending of all Suffering,
the abating of all disease, and the complete passing away of all ageing, decay
and even the elimination of the process and necessity of death itself!
Bhikkhus, the arising, emergence, maintenance, creation, & manifestation
of the Mind is also the arising of Suffering, the long continuation of disease,
the very manifestation of ageing, decay and Death itself!
Therefore is the ceasing, subsiding, silencing and thus the complete passing
away of the Mind and all mentality consequently also the final ending of all
Suffering, the abating of all disease, & stopping the ageing, sickness, pain,
suffering, & even the fact of death itself! Only this can end all Suffering!
