The eye is impermanent, suffering, without soul, a changeable thing; visible (objects) are impermanent, suffering, without soul, changeable things. The ear is impermanent, suffering, without soul, a changeable thing; audible (objects) are impermanent, suffering, without soul, changeable things. The nose is impermanent, suffering, without soul, a changeable thing; odorous (objects) are impermanent, suffering, without soul, changeable things.
