Friends:

These 12 Sources (ãyatana) is the ALL in itself!

1: The eye is the source of seeing...
2: Form is the source of the seen...
3: The ear is the source of hearing...
4: Sound is the source of the heard...
5: The nose is the source of smelling...
6: Scent is the source of the smelt...
7: The tongue is the source of tasting...
8: Flavor is the source of the tasted...
9: The body is the source of touching...
10: Tangibles are the source of the touched...
11: The mind is the source of cognizing...
12: Mental phenomena are the source of the cognized.

Beyond these exists nothing, since this classification includes all
phenomena, even the unconstructed and unconditioned dimension
of Nibbāna, which though transcendental, still is a source of this
cognizable mental phenomenon: Namely the even sameness of the
Highest Bliss, the most Ultimate Freedom and the Deepest Peace!
