Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
Chapter-13. ( Khetra-kshetrajna-vibhaga-yogam )
Mahabutaniahankarah bhuddhiraviyaktameva ca,
Indriyani dasaikam ca panchendriyagocarah.
mahabutani = five elements ( Akasam, vayu, agni, jalam, bhumi. );
ahankaram = false ego ( A sense of "karthrutva- bhoktyatva-abhimanam" );
bhuddhi avyaktam = intelligence, vasana;
dhasa indriyani = ten indriyas;
ekam = mind;
pancha indriya gocarah = five indriya vishayas ( objects : form, sound, taste, smell, touch. ), thus, cosisting of 24 tattva-s.
iccha dveshah sukam dukham samkhatascetana drutih,
etat kshetram samasena savikaramudahrutam.
etat kshetram = this kshetram ( our body );
iccha dvesham sukam dukkam = desire, hatred, joy and sorrow;
samkhatah cetana drutih = samkhatam, cetana, and druti;
savikaram = thus 7 emotions;
samasena udahrutam = briefed to you Arjuna.
Discussion - 2.
Then there are false ego, intelligence and the unmanifested stage of the three modes of nature.
Then there are five senses for acquiring knowledge: the eyes, ears, nose, tongue and touch.
Then five working senses: voice, legs, hands, the anus and the genitals.
Then, above the senses, there is the mind, which is within and which can be called the sense within.
Therefore, including the mind, there are eleven senses altogether.
Then there are the five objects of the senses: smell, taste, warmth, touch and sound.
Now the aggregate of these twenty-four elements is called the field of activity.
If one makes an analytical study of these twenty-four subjects, then he can very well understand the field of activity.
Then there is desire, hatred, pleasure and pain, which are interactions, representations of the five great elements in the gross body.
The living symptoms, represented by consciousness and conviction, are the manifestation of the subtle body-mind, ego and intelligence.
These subtle elements are included within the field of activities.
