      54. And how, Ambattha, is the Bhikshu guarded as to the doors of his senses? When, Ambattha, he sees an object with his eye he is not entranced in the general appearance or the details of it. He sets himself to restrain that which might give occasion for evil states, covetousness and dejection, to flow in over him so long as he dwells unrestrained as to his sense of sight. He keeps watch upon his faculty of sight, and in the faculty he undergoes restraint.
