In sanathan dharma, there are atleast six sensory organs: manas, ears, skin, eye, tongue, nose. We are considering only the five physical sensory organs for our discussion, keeping manas aside.
The accepted hierarchy of human senses -- sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell -- is not universally true across all cultures, new research shows.
Consider the following statement of Vyasa
Having first subdued the mind, the Yogin should then proceed to subdue his ears, then his eyes, then his tongue, and then his nose.
The order given by vyasa is: ears (1), eyes (2), tongue (3), nose (4). He didn't tell about skin.
Is it the ordering based on the power of sensory organs? If yes, why skin is not considered?
If no, do scriptures mention the order of sensory organs based on their power/influence on the jiva?
