FEELING; (Sanskrit: vedana – Tibetan: tsorbha)
Vedana skandha; Skandha of Feeling means the immediate feeling of pleasure, displeasure or indifference, that is felt, when contact between sense object and sensual faculty has appeared in the skandha of form. In the same way, the skandha of feeling means attraction, rejection or neutrality - and excitement, disappointment or insensitivity and so forth. Also on this level, each feeling occurs separately from any other, because each feeling arises from each individual sensation. The skandha of feeling is the quality of the disturbance in the skandha of form.
