1. Cakkhu Sutta. Preached to Rāhula at
Jetavana. The Buddha shows him how the eye and all the other senses are fleeting
and lead to unhappiness. The well-taught disciple should, therefore, be repelled
by the senses. S. ii.244, also 249.
2. Cakkhu Sutta. The eye and all the
other senses are impermanent. He who has faith in these doctrines, or has seen
them moderately with his insight, is assured of perfection; he who has realised
them is a stream-winner, bound for enlightenment. S. ii.225.
3. Cakkhu Sutta. In the arising and the
rebirth of the eye lies the origin of suffering, disease, decay and death; so
also with the other senses. The cessation of these states is brought about by
the cessation in the birth of the senses. S. iii.228.
4. Cakkhu Sutta. The desire and lust
arising in the eye and in the other senses mean corruption of the heart. By
putting away such corruption can the truth be realised. S. iii.232.
