pancha panchaka

The concept of pancha-panchaka depicts that each sense organ has its own predominant basic material constituent, site for perception, specific object, and specific perception. Thus behind every perceivable knowledge these five components are involved. [verse 3]

The five pentads of sense organs (indriya pancha-panchaka) include sense organs, source material constituent, site, object, and specific perception. These five components are involved in every knowledge process.
