1. Sañcetanā Sutta.– The Buddha questions Rāhula on volition regarding the six sense objects, whether it is permanent or impermanent. Rāhula replies that it is impermanent. The Buddha says that a noble disciple who sees things in this way becomes disenchanted with volitions, and being dispassionate is freed. S.ii.247.
2. Sañcetanā Sutta.– The arising, continuation, production, and manifestation of volition regarding form … feeling … perception … mental formations … consciousness is the arising of suffering. The cessation, subsiding, and fading away of craving regarding form … consciousness is the cessation of suffering. S.iii.230.
3. Sañcetanā Sutta.– The desire and lust for volition regarding form … feeling … perception … mental formations … consciousness is the corruption of the mind. When a monk has abandoned mental corruption, the mind becomes wieldy regarding those things to be realised by direct knowledge. S.iii.233.
