SN 22:102 Perception of Impermanence

Translated from the Pali by John D. Ireland

“The perceiving of impermanence, Bhikkhus, developed and frequently practiced, removes all sensual passion, removes all passion for material existence, removes all passion for becoming, removes all ignorance, removes and abolishes all conceit of ’I am.’

“Just as in the autumn a farmer, plowing with a large plow cuts through all a spreading rootlets as he plows; in the same way, Bhikkhus, the perceiving of impermanence, developed and frequently practiced, removes all sensual passion … removes and abolishes all conceit of ’I am.’”
