The 5 Clusters of Clinging Suffer!

The material body is like the prison, because it is the site of the punishment.
Perception is like the offence, because it via contact causes the punishment.
Feeling is like the punishment one cannot control, as it is caused by contact.
Mental construction is like the punisher, since it via craving causes feeling.
Consciousness is like the villain, because this is what is tormented by feeling.
Vism. Comm: Pm. 504
