Aṅguttara Nikāya 1.1-1.10
Sights, etc.

The Supreme Buddha taught that desire is the cause of suffering. What did he say that people desire?

AN 1.1

This is how I heard. At one time the Buddha was staying in the city of Sāvatthī in Jeta’s park, at Anāthapiṇḍika’s monastery. There, the Buddha addressed the monks, “Monks!”
“Bhante,” they replied. The Buddha said this:
“Monks, I do not see a single sight that obsesses a man’s mind like the sight of a woman. The sight of a woman obsesses a man’s mind.”

AN 1.2

“Monks, I do not see a single sound that obsesses a man’s mind like the sound of a woman. The sound of a woman obsesses a man’s mind.”

AN 1.3

“Monks, I do not see a single smell that obsesses a man’s mind like the smell of a woman. The smell of a woman obsesses a man’s mind.”

AN 1.4

“Monks, I do not see a single taste that obsesses a man’s mind like the taste of a woman. The taste of a woman obsesses a man’s mind.”

AN 1.5

“Monks, I do not see a single touch that obsesses a man’s mind like the touch of a woman. The touch of a woman obsesses a man’s mind.”

AN 1.6

“Monks, I do not see a single sight that obsesses a woman’s mind like the sight of a man. The sight of a man obsesses a woman’s mind.”

AN 1.7

“Monks, I do not see a single sound that obsesses a woman’s mind like the sound of a man. The sound of a man obsesses a woman’s mind.”

AN 1.8

“Monks, I do not see a single smell that obsesses a woman’s mind like the smell of a man. The smell of a man obsesses a woman’s mind.”

AN 1.9

“Monks, I do not see a single taste that obsesses a woman’s mind like the taste of a man. The taste of a man obsesses a woman’s mind.”

AN 1.10

“Monks, I do not see a single touch that obsesses a woman’s mind like the touch of a man. The touch of a man obsesses a woman’s mind.”
