The six sense faculties (Skt. indriya, Tib. དབང་པོ་དྲུག་, Wyl. dbang po drug) are:

  • Visual faculty (Skt. cakṣurindriya, Tib. མིག་གི་དབང་པོ་, Wyl. mig gi dbang po)
  • Auditory faculty (Skt. śrotrendriya, Tib. རྣ་བའི་དབང་པོ་, Wyl. rna ba’i dbang po)
  • Olfactory faculty (Skt. ghrāṇendriya, Tib. སྣའི་དབང་པོ་, Wyl. sna’i dbang po)
  • Gustatory faculty (Skt. jihvendriya, Tib. ལྕེའི་དབང་པོ་ , Wyl. lce’i dbang po)
  • Tactile faculty (Skt. kāyendriya, Tib. ལུས་ཀྱི་དབང་པོ་, Wyl. lus kyi dbang po)
  • Mental faculty (Skt. manendriya, Tib. ཡིད་ཀྱི་དབང་པོ་, Wyl. yid kyi dbang po)

These six faculties control the apprehending of their individual objects. Sometimes only five sense faculties are mentioned as they are material and the sixth, the mental faculty, is non-material.
