SN35.160-1 Samadhi and Solitude for Self-awakening: talk by Piya Tan

Jivakambavana Suttas 1 & 2 (SN35.160, SN35.161)

Thank you for posting! Highly recommended

SN35.164 is also pretty good:

“Koṭṭhita, you should give up desire for what is not-self. And what is not-self? The eye, sights, eye consciousness, and eye contact are not-self: you should give up desire for them. The pleasant, painful, or neutral feeling that arises conditioned by eye contact is also not-self: You should give up desire for it. The ear … nose … tongue … body … The mind, thoughts, mind consciousness, and mind contact … The pleasant, painful, or neutral feeling that arises conditioned by mind contact is also not-self: you should give up desire for it. Koṭṭhita, you should give up desire for what is not-self.”

Its great when the Buddha says this is how you get rid of wrong view (by seeing these aspects of experience), in SN35.165.
