Saṃyuktāgama 192. [First Discourse on not Being Free from Desire]

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: “If one is not free from desire for the eye, one’s mind is not liberated and one is not capable of rightly eradicating dukkha. [If] one is not free from desire for the ear … the nose … the tongue … the body … the mind, one’s mind is not liberated and one is not capable of rightly eradicating dukkha.

“Monks, if one is free from desire for the eye, one’s mind is liberated and one is capable of rightly eradicating dukkha. [If] one is free from desire for the ear … the nose … the tongue … the body … the mind, one’s mind is liberated and one is capable of rightly eradicating dukkha.”

When the Buddha had spoken this discourse, hearing what the Buddha had said the monks were delighted and received it respectfully.
