Gandha (T. dri དྲི་; C. xiang 香) is translated as "smells," "olfactory objects," etc.
Gandha (smells) are the objects of the nose faculty, and are cognized by the nose consciousness.
Gandha (smells) are identified as:
- one of the five sense objects
- one of the six sense objects
- one of the eighteen dhatus
- one of the twelve ayatanas
- belonging to rupa skandha (the aggregate of forms)
The Khenjuk states:
- Smells are the sense objects of the nose. There are odors that are pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral, and those that are natural or manufactured.
