Kindred Sayings II, Nidaana-sa.myutta, Ch VII,
61:

or “But that which is called Citta and Mano and Vinnana arises as one thing
and ceases as another by day and night.”
Samyutta 12:61 (Bhikkhu Bodhi transl).

” ‘Whatever has the characteristic of cognizing should be understood, all
taken together, as the consciousness aggregate’ was said above. And what
has the characteristic of cognizing (vijaanana)? Consciousness
(vi~n~naa.na); according as it is said, ‘It cognizes, friend, that is why
‘consciousness’ is said (M i 292). The words vi~n~naa.na (consciousness),
citta (mind, consciousness), and mano (mind) are one in meaning.”
