Chachakka Sutta, The Six Sets of Six, Pali Canon

“Now, wise ones, this is the way leading to the origination of identity. (i) One regards the eye thus: ‘This is mine, this I am, this is my self.’ One regards forms thus… One regards eye-consciousness thus…One regards eye-contact thus…One regards feeling thus…One regards craving thus: ‘This is mine, this I am, this is my self.’

“One regards the ear thus: ‘This is mine, this I am, this is my self.’… One regards the nose thus: ‘This is mine, this I am, this is my self.’…One regards the tongue thus: ‘This is mine, this I am, this is my self.’…One regards the body thus: ‘This is mine, this I am, this is my self.’…One regards the mind thus: ‘This is mine, this I am, this is my self.’ One regards mind-objects thus…One regards mind-consciousness thus…One regards mind-contact thus…One regards feeling thus…One regards craving thus: ‘This is mine, this I am, this is my self.’

The Cessation of Identity

“Now, wise ones, this is the way leading to the cessation of identity. (i) One regards the eye thus: ‘This is not mine, this
I am not, this is not my self.’ One regards forms thus …One regards eye-consciousness thus…One regards eye-contact thus …One regards feeling thus…One regards craving thus: ‘This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self.’

“One regards the ear thus: ‘This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self.’…One regards the nose thus: ‘This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self.’…One regards the tongue thus: ‘This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self.’… One regards the body thus: ‘This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self.’ …One regards the mind thus: ‘This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self.’ One regards mind-objects thus… One regards mind-consciousness thus… One regards mind-contact thus…One regards feeling thus…One regards craving thus: ‘This is not mine, this I am not, this is not myself.’
