Spraṣṭavya (P. phoṭṭhabba; T. reg bya རེག་བྱ་; C. suochu 所觸) is translated as "tangible objects," "objects of touch," etc.
Spraṣṭavya (tangible objects) 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:
- Tangible objects are the sense objects of the body. There are the tangible objects of the four causal forms, and the seven tangible objects of the resultant forms, which are smoothness, roughness, heaviness, lightness, and [the inner physical sensations of] hunger, thirst and cold. There are also the tangible objects of being supple, yielding or rigid, and [the inner physical sensations of feeling] sated, ill, aged, dying, rested, and bold. Bold means feeling fearless, not shying away due to [one's own] bodily strength.
- As indicated by these, please understand that there are numerous ways of experiencing external and internal bodily tangible objects.
