An individual is made up of Consciousness (Citta), Mental States (Cetasikas), and Matter (Rupa). The combination of consciousness and mental states is called Mind (Nama), because they are inclined towards the senses as they can be aware of the senses.
Again mind and matter can be divided into five aggregates of existence. They are:-
(1) Physical aggregate (Rupakkhandha) = the combination of 28 kinds of matter;
(2) The aggregate of sensation (Vedanakkhanda) = the combination of all sensations;
(3) The aggregate of perception (Sannakkhandha) = the combination of all perceptions;
(4) The aggregate of volitional activities (Sankharakkhandha) = the combination of all mental states except sensation and perception; and
(5) The aggregate of consciousness (Vinnanakkhandha) = The combination of all consciousness.
(1)=Matter ;Rupa & (2+3+4+5) = Mind ;Citta + Cetasika
Buddha preached that there only exists 4 Paramattha Dhammas of Citta+Cetasika (Mind), Rupa (Matter) and Nibbana in nature and there is no “Self or Soul”.
