in John Haspel's book, 'Becoming Buddha', the following quote is attributed to MN 11:
“Magandiya, when you hear the true Dhamma, ... When released from clinging the mind is without feature or surface, limitless, outside of time and space, freed from the six-sense base.”
Here's a larger quote:
While meditating with tranquility, allow insight to arise and have a direct experience of the Buddha’s teachings leading to abandoning clinging and the cessation of suffering. Experience awakening through unbinding the Five Clinging-Aggregates.
“Magandiya, when you hear the true Dhamma, you will practice the Dhamma correctly. When you practice the Dhamma correctly, you will know & see for yourself: ‘This is where confusion and suffering ceases without trace. With the cessation of my clinging comes the cessation of becoming. With the cessation of becoming comes the cessation of birth. With the cessation of birth then aging & death, sorrow, lamentation, pain, distress, & despair all cease. Such is the cessation of this entire mass of suffering & stress.” (Majjhima Nikaya 11)
The Buddha describes a mind free of clinging and freed of association to the five clinging aggregates:
“released from clinging the mind is without feature or surface, limitless, outside of time and space, freed from the six-sense base.” (Majjhima Nikaya 11)

However I don't see this phrase, that verse about the nature of the mind, in translations of MN 11.
Because the quote mentions Magandiya, I looked in MN 75 as well, but don't see it there either.
Is that verse anywhere to be found in the Pali Canon?
Thanks for your much appreciated help.
