02.15-22

English:

There are five sense organs. They are of two types each, material and modal. Material organs have physical shapes and are the means for acquiring knowledge. Modal organs have the knowing capability related to one's level of accomplishment. They know by application of that capability in senses of touch, taste etc. Skin, tongue nose,, eyes and ears are five sense organs. Touch, taste, odor, sight and sound are the objects of those senses. Mind is an internal organ; its jurisdiction prevails in the realm of scriptures.

Skin, tongue, nose, eyes and ears are the five sense organs. They are physical and are therefore termed as Dravyendriya. They are the means of acquiring knowledge, while the capability to know rests within. That is termed as Bhāvendriya (modal organ), its capacity to know depends upon the extent to which the defiling Karmas are overcome. That capability is exercised by applying it to the objects of physical senses, viz. touch, taste, odor, sight and sound. Their jurisdiction prevails in the realm of intellect. Moreover there is the mind, which is an internal organ. Its capability prevails in intellectual as well as scriptural realm. Since it relates more to the latter, it is said here that the scriptural realm constitutes the jurisdiction of mind.
