Buddhist Dictionary by NYANATILOKA MAHATHERA
subha-nimitta:'beautiful (or attractive) object of mind'; it may become an inducement to the arising of sense-desire (kāmacchanda; s.nīvaraṇa):No other thing do I know,o monks,through which in such a degree sense-desire may arise,and once arisen will continue to grow,as an attractive object.Whoso does not wisely consider an attractive object,in him sense-desire will arise,and once arisen will continue to grow" (A.I,2).
