Applications and Meanings of the Term Dhamma

1 January 2520


6. mind-object

“Ye te cakkhuviññeyyā rūpā …pe… ye te manoviññeyyā dhammā aviññātā aviññātapubbā, na ca vijānāsi, na ca te hoti vijāneyyanti; atthi te tattha chando vā rāgo vā pemaṁ vāti.

No hetaṁ bhante.”

(Those forms cognizable by the eye … those mind-objects cognizable by the mind, states not cognized, never before cognized, which you cognize not now nor wish to do so, have you desire, lust and fondness for them? Surely not, lord.)

(S.18/132/90 = IV.73)

“Idhāvuso bhikkhu cakkhunā rūpaṁ disvā … manasā dhammaṁ viññāya, piyarūpe dhamme adhimuccati, appiyarūpe dhamme byāpajjati, anupaṭṭhitakāyasati ca viharati parittacetaso, tañca cetovimuttiṁ paññāvimuttiṁ yathābhūtaṁ nappajānāti.”

(Herein, friends, a bhikkhu, seeing a form with the eye …. cognizing a mind-object with the mind, feels attachment for the object that charms, feels aversion from the object that displeases, abides with mindfulness on the body unestablished, and his thoughts are mean. He realizes not that deliverance of mind, that deliverance of wisdom, in its true nature.)

(S.18/389/229 = IV.185)

7. mental objects; mental factors; mental activities; mental data; ideas

“Tasmiṁ kho pana samaye dhammā honti, khandhā honti, …”

(Now, at that time, there are states, there are the aggregates, …)

(Dhs.34/99/33 = 121)

“Idha bhikkhave bhikkhu dhammesu dhammānupassī viharati pañcasu nīvaraṇesu.”

(Here a Bhikkhu abides contemplating mental objects as mental objects in terms of the five hindrances.)

(D.10/290/335 = II.300)
