"Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu sees as impermanent form which is actually impermanent: that is his right view.
Seeing rightly, he experiences revulsion.
With the destruction of delight comes the destruction of lust; with the destruction of lust comes the destruction of delight.
With the destruction of delight and lust the mind is liberated and is said to be well liberated.
"A bhikkhu sees as impermanent feeling which is actually impermanent ... perception which is actually impermanent ... volitional formations which are actually impermanent ... consciousness which is actually impermanent: that is his right view. ...
With the destruction of delight and lust the mind is liberated and is said to be well liberated."
