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.
