Part 2: Dialogues 2.37. The Five Awarenesses Produced by Different Karma

The king again asked Nāgasena, “Are the five awarenesses (ayatanas) of a person produced by various actions or by one action?”

Nāgasena replied, “They are produced by various actions, not by one action. It is just like when five kinds of seeds have been sown in a field, they would grow each according to its own kind. So are the five awarenesses of a person, they are produced by various actions.”

“Excellent, Nāgasena.”
