Example text

Anything gross, that is rupa, anything small, the mind and thoughts, these are nama. Thus the first four khandhas evidently are mentioned as constituting nama rupa. But from the following quotation it would appear that the fifth khandha, consciousness, could not exist independently of the four former. Yo bhikkhave evam vadeyya. Aham anna rupeca annatha vedanaya annatha sannaya annatha samkharehi vinnanassa agatini va gatini va cutini va appathne va vuddhim va xirulhim va vepullim va pannapessamiti netam thanam vijjati.

Rupam bhikkhave anattam, yadanattam n'etam mama n’eso ’hamismineso attati. Organised form, Priests, is not self, that which is not self is not mind, I am not that, that is, not to me a soul. So of Wedana, Sauna, Sankhara, and Winnana. The same is said of rupa, present, past, and future, etc. Yam Kanci rupam atitanagata paccuppannam ajjhattam va bahiddha va olarikam va sukbumam va hinam va panitam va yam dure ra santike va sabbam, rupam n'etam mama n'eso hamasmi nameso attati evametam yathabhutam sammappannaya datthabbam.

Priests, this is called the whole. Again, according to the following authorities, nama and rupa constituted the whole man. Katamanca bhikkliave nama rupam? Wedana sauna cetana phasso manasikaro; idam vuccati numam. Cattaroca mahabhutaca cattmnaca maha hhutanam upadaya rupam. Idam vuccati rupam. Priests, what are the namarupa? Wedana, sensation, sanna, perception, cetana, the faculty of reason, phasso, touch, and manasikaro, mental objects. This is called the nama. That which is compounded of these four elements is called rupa.
