How do noble disciples guard the sense doors? When noble disciples see a sight with their eyes… hear a sound with their ears … smell an odor with their nose … taste a flavor with their tongue … feel a touch with their body … know a thought with their mind, they don’t get caught up in the features and details.

If the sense faculties were left unrestrained, unskillful qualities of attachment and aversion would become overwhelming. For this reason, they practice restraint, protecting the sense faculties, and achieving restraint. That’s how noble disciples guard the sense doors.

—Ananda, Sekhasutta
