Within the human body, dwell five senses—sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing. These senses, engaging with their respective objects of perception, give rise to sensations of both happiness and distress. However, it’s crucial to recognize that none of these sensations are permanent; they ebb and flow like the changing seasons. What brings pleasure in one context may induce discomfort in another—much like cool water providing relief in the summer but causing discomfort in the winter. Both the experiences of happiness and distress derived from sensory perceptions are fleeting. Allowing oneself to be swayed by these transient sensations can lead to a pendulum-like oscillation between emotional states. A person endowed with discrimination should cultivate the practice of tolerating both feelings of happiness and distress without being unduly disturbed by them.
