Rasa (T. ro རོ་; C. wei 味) is translated as "tastes," "taste objects," etc.
Rasa (tastes) 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:
- Tastes are the sense objects of the tongue. There are six kinds: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and bland. Many subsidiary types come about from mixing them. Tastes also have the divisions of being pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral, as well as being natural or manufactured.
