What is Dravya? In which there
are Kriyaa Gun and Gun are called Dravya. Among them Prithvi, Jal, Tej,
Vaayu, Aatmaa and Man - these 6 Dravya are of Kriyaa and Gun.
From whatever the objective (Lakshya) is known, is called Lakshan - such as one knows the Roop by eyes, so eyes are and Roop is Lakshya.
Prithvi has Roop, Ras, Gandh
and Sparsh. In it Roop, Ras and Sparsh are because of Fire, Water and Air -
Gandh is its own characteristic.
One hears from ears - Shabd,
sees from eyes - Roop, takes Ras from tongue, smells from nose - Gandh,
touches from skin - Sparsh.
Utkshepan - to act upward;
and Avakshepan - to act downward
Saamaanya (normal) and Vishesh
(specific) are known by Buddhi.
