Example text

I t is not impossible th a t some open allusions to ‘ like being known by like ’ may be discovered in the Pitakas as a consciously held and deliberately stated principle or ground of the im pressibility of the sentient organism. No such statem ent occurs in our M anual. B ut the phrase, recurring in the case of each of th e special senses, ‘ derived from the four G reat Phenom ena,’ may not have been inserted without this implication. W ithout further evidence, how­ ever, I should not be inclined to attach philosophical signi­ ficance in this direction to it.

2 Secondly, an analysis of the sensory process in each case as under A, but, as it were, from the side of the sense-object, t h u s : (a) A mode of form or sense-object, capable of producing impact on a special apparatus of the individual organism ; 1 This insistence on the invisibility of all the senses, as well as on th a t of all sense-objects except sights or visual forms, is to me only explicable on the ground th a t r u p a m recurring in each question and each answer, and signifying, whatever else it meant, in popular idiom, things seen, it was necessary, in philosophic usage, to indicate th a t the term , though referring to sense, did not, with one exception, connote things seen.

As a learner of ethical doctrine, pursuing either th e lower or the higher ideal, the B uddhist was concerned with the external world ju st as far as it directly and inevitably affected his m oral welfare and th a t of other m oral beings, th a t is to say, of all conscious anim ate beings.
