<p>The term pañca kāmaguṇā is used to analyze kāma through the five sensory organs. In the Buddhist prose scriptures, most cases of kāma are replaced with pañca kāmaguṇā. Moreover, the plural sentences used to define pañca kāmaguṇā become one of the fixed forms of expression used in the prose scriptures.

We can conclude that this was affected by the saḷāyatana, a fundamental notion in Early Buddhism.</p>
