10.4. Of Sensations as Moral and Immoral
Theravādin: Verbatim similar to Kv10.3.1–Kv10.3.3.) The argument being here, too, that the senses are limited to sense-objects, ethical and intellectual matters being the concerns of intellect, will, etc.
“Here, bhikkhus, when a bhikkhu sees an object with the eye, he grasps, … or again, does not grasp, at the general characters or the details of it, … or hears a sound, etc…”
Surely then the five sorts of sense-consciousness are good and bad.
