1. Pahāna Sutta.– All should be abandoned. The eye, forms, eye-consciousness, eye-contact, feelings arising from eye-contact — whether pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral — should be abandoned. The ear, sounds … the nose … tongue … the body … mind … and feelings arising from mental contact should be abandoned. S.iv.15.
2. Pahāna Sutta.– There are three feelings: pleasant, unpleasant, and neutral. The underlying tendency to lust should be abandoned in pleasant feelings. The underlying tendency to ill-will should be abandoned in unpleasant feelings. The underlying tendency to ignorance should be abandoned in neutral feelings. A monk who has done this sees things as rightly, he has cut off craving, broken through conceit, and put an end to suffering. S.iv.205.
3. Pahāna Sutta.– When the perception of abandoning is developed and cultivated it leads to great comfort. S.v.133.
4. Pahāna Sutta.– The holy-life (brahmacariyā) is for the purpose of getting rid of the seven fetters (saṃyojana). A.iv.7.
