Saṃyuktāgama 164. [Discourse on the View that Winds do not Blow]

Thus have I heard. At one time the Buddha was staying at Sāvatthī in Jeta's Grove, Anāthapiṇḍika's Park.

At that time the Blessed One said to the monks: “The existence of what is the cause, by clinging to what, by being fettered and attached to what, by seeing what as the self, do living beings have a view like this and speak like this: 'Winds do not blow, fires do not burn, waters do not flow, arrows are not shot, pregnant women do not give birth, milk does not [come from] pulling [a cow's udder], of the sun and the moon it cannot be known if they rise or set, if it is bright or dark?”

The monks said to the Buddha: “The Blessed One is the root of the Dharma, the eye of the Dharma, the foundation of the Dharma …” to be recited fully in the same way in the sequence of the above three discourses.
