      Dear Members,

      The Debate of King Milinda
      [ Edited by Bhikkhu Pesala ]

      #32. "What is the characteristic mark of feeling (vedanā)?"

      "The being experienced, O king, and enjoyed."

      "Give me an illustration."

      "As a man, who has been of service to a king and has been granted an official post, afterwards enjoys the benefits of being in office."

      -----------

      #33. "What is the characteristic mark of perception (saññā)?"

      "Recognising,3 O king, of blueness, yellowness, or redness."

      "Give me an illustration."

      "It is as the king's treasurer recognises the king's goods on seeing their colour and shape."

      -----------

      #34. "What is the characteristic mark of intention (cetanā)?"

      "Conceiving, O king, and preparing."

      "Give me an illustration."

      "As a man having prepared poison and having drunk it would suffer pain, so one having thought out some evil deed and having done it, afterwards has to suffer in hell."
