1. Analysis Of The Aggregates

1.1. Analysis According To The Discourses

The five aggregates are: The aggregate of form, aggregate of feeling, aggregate of perception, aggregate of volitional activities, aggregate of consciousness.

1.1.1. The Aggregate Of Form

Therein what is the aggregate of form? Whatever form is past, future or present, internal or external gross or subtle, inferior or superior, distant or proximate; (taking) these together collectively and briefly, this is called the aggregate of form.

Therein what is past form? That form which is past, ceased, dissolved, changed, terminated, disappeared, or which having arisen has dissolved, has passed and is classed among the things that are past, (i.e.) the four great essentials and the material qualities derived from the four great essentials. This is called past form.

Therein what is future form? That form which is not born, not become, not begotten, non-existent, fully non-existent, not apparent, not risen, not well risen, not uprisen, not well uprisen, which is future and is classed among the things that are future, (i.e.) the four great essentials and the material qualities derived from the four great essentials. This is called future form.

Therein what is present form? That form which is born, become, begotten, existent, fully existent, apparent, risen, well risen, uprisen, well uprisen, which is present and is classed among the things that are present, (i.e.) the four great essentials and the material qualities derived from the four great essentials. This is called present form.

Therein what is internal form? That form which, for this or that being, is personal, self-referable, one’s own, individual and is grasped (by craving and false view), (i.e.) the four great essentials and the material qualities derived from the four great essentials. This is called internal form.

Therein what is external form? That form which, for this or that other being, for other persons, is personal, self-referable, one’s own, individual and is grasped, (i.e.) the four great essentials and the material qualities derived from the four great essentials. This is called external form.

Therein what is gross form? The eye sense-base, See section 154. tangible sense-base. This is called gross form.

Therein what is subtle form? The faculty of femininity, See Dhammasaṅgaṇī section 595. the nutrient factor of food. This is called subtle form.

Therein what is inferior form? That form which, for this or that being, is contemptible, despised, worthless, derisible, disrespected, inferior, thought to be inferior, considered to be inferior, undesirable, unattractive, unpleasant, (i.e.) the visible, audible, odorous, sapid, tangible. This is called inferior form.

Therein what is superior form? That form which, for this or that being, is not contemptible, not despised, not worthless, not derisible, respected, superior, thought to be superior, considered to be superior, desirable, attractive, pleasant, (i.e.) the visible, audible, odorous, sapid, tangible. This is called superior form. Inferior and superior form should be understood by comparing this form with that.

Therein what is distant form? The faculty of femininity, See Dhammasaṅgaṇī section 595. the nutrient factor of food or whatever other form there is, not near, not close, distant, not proximate. This is called distant form.

Therein what is proximate form? The eye sense-base, See section 154. tangible sense-base or whatever other form there is, near, close, not distant, proximate. This is called proximate form. Distant and proximate form should be understood by comparing this form with that.

(Here Ends) Analysis According To The Discourses

1.2. Analysis According To Abhidhamma

The five aggregates are: The aggregate of form, aggregate of feeling, aggregate of perception, aggregate of volitional activities, aggregate of consciousness.

1.2.1. The Aggregate Of Form

Therein what is the aggregate of form? The aggregate of form by way of singlefold division: All form is not root. Is not accompanied by root. Is not associated with root. Is with cause. Is conditioned. Is material. Is mundane. Is the object of the defilements. Is the object of the fetters. Is the object of the ties. Is the object of the floods. Is the object of the bonds. Is the object of the hindrances. Is the object of the perversions. Is the object of the graspings. Is the object of the corruptions. Is neither-skilful-nor-unskilful. Has no object. Is not mental concomitant. Is not associated with consciousness. Is neither resultant nor productive of resultant. Is not corrupt, is the object of the corruptions. Is not “accompanied by initial application, accompanied by sustained application”. Is not “without initial application, sustained application only”. Is without initial application, without sustained application. Is not accompanied by rapture. Is not accompanied by pleasure. Is not accompanied by indifference. Is not to be abandoned either by the first path or by the subsequent paths. Has no root to be abandoned either by the first path or by the subsequent paths. Is neither cumulative nor dispersive (of continuing rebirth and death). Is neither of the seven supramundane stages nor of the final supramundane stage. Is low. Is characteristic of the plane of desire. Is not characteristic of the plane of form. Is not characteristic of the formless plane. Is included (i.e. is mundane). Is not “not included” (i.e. not supramundane). Is of no fixed (resultant time). Does not tend to release. Is risen. Is cognizable by the six types of cognition. Is not permanent. Is subject to decay. Thus is the aggregate of form by way of singlefold division.

The aggregate of form by way of twofold division: There is form that is derived; there is form that is not derived. There is form that is grasped (by craving and false view); there is form that is not grasped. There is form that is grasped, is the object of the graspings; there is form that is not grasped, is the object of the graspings. There is form that is visible; there is form that is not visible, there is form that is impingent; there is form that is not impingent. There is form that is faculty; there is form that is not faculty. There is form that is of the (four) great essentials; there is form that is not of the (four) great essentials. There is form that is expressive; there is form that is not expressive. There is form that is generated by consciousness; there is form that is not generated by consciousness. There is form that is co-existent with consciousness; there is form that is not co-existent with consciousness. There is form that accompanies consciousness; there is form that does not accompany consciousness. There is form that is internal; there is form that is external. There is form that is gross; there is form that is subtle. There is form that is distant; there is form that is proximate. See Dhammasaṅgaṇī, section on form, for omissions. There is form that is the nutrient factor of food; there is form that is not the nutrient factor of food. Thus is the aggregate of form by way of twofold division.

As analysed in the section on form (of Dhammasaṅgaṇī) so should it be analysed here.

The aggregate of form by way of threefold division: That form which is internal is derived; that form which is external is derived; is not derived. That form which is internal is grasped; that form which is external is grasped; is not grasped. That form which is internal is grasped, is the object of the graspings; that form which is external is grasped, is the object of the graspings; is not grasped, is the object of the graspings. See Dhammasaṅgaṇī, section on form, for omissions.
