Five Organs of Senses
Our body has very powerful, but delicate five sense organs which are interrelated through the brain, and all their activities and impressions are also motivated and guided by the train. These organs pertain to hearing (ears), vision (eyes), smell (nose), touch (skin), and taste (tongue).
Ears: Ears enable us to listen to the remotest, farthest, and all kinds of sounds and noises. We can speak only after hearing and what to see, we convey to the other person who listens to them with the aid of ears alone. Had there been no ears, we would never have enjoyed the musical sounds and melodies, expressions of joy and sorrow, etc.

Eyes: No man-made camera is as effective, precise, and capable as our eyes are. It is through eyes alone that we can perceive various colors, visions, sights, and all the miracles of man and nature. Beauty is beheld through the eyes alone, without eyes the entire universe would have remained as a dark entity for us.
Eighty percent of the experience gained owes its origin to eyes. Eyes are a mirror of our emotions, expressions, perceptions, sentiments. Only our eyes can express sorrow and mirth by shedding tears, by the sparkle in the eyes. Eyes depict the character of a person. However one may try to conceal his sentiments, eyes reveal the actual reactions and impressions.
Smell: The nose is the only organ (having two nostrils) that enables us to smell, breathe in and breathe out, maintain the proper and requisite equilibrium of heat in the body. It must have been observed many times that, while breathing through the mouth we get fatigued as our mouth dries up, but never while breathing through the nose.
Which never drives up. Moreover, hair within it never has any dust particles to infiltrate into our breath-stream. When a person cannot be fed by mouth he is fed through the nose (Nasal Feeding). Without a nose, the power to smell would have been lost to our bodies. Animals can’t speak but they have an in-built quality to discern what not to eat, simply by smelling any food.
Touch: Skin is a barometer of climatic changes. It discloses the effects of heat and cold on the body and protects our body from outside impressions. As soon as an object touches our body we, at once, come to know with which object we have been touched upon/by.
Skin not only gives a sense of touch, but it also serves as an outlet to let out foreign toxins by way of sweating. The skin has an unmatched sensitivity.
Taste: The tongue is the principal organ that discerns various tastes. It is the only organ that imparts taste to food through the taste buds. But for the tongue and its capacity to be tasty, we would never have tested, tasted, and relished our foods.
As eyes are mirrors of our expressions and feelings, the tongue is a mirror of our status of health. A healthy tongue implies neat, clean, moist, rose-colored, indentured. The tongue also controls our speech. It is the tongue only that tells us as to whether a food is hot, cold, tasty, pungent, or sour/bitter.
