Khandas in Buddhist philosophy, are the elements of sentient existence, of which there are five:

1. The organized body, or the whole of being, apart from the mental processes; 2. Sensation; 3. Perception; 4. Discrimination; 5. Consciousness.

The four last Khandas are results or properties of the first, which must be understood as including the soul as well as the body. At death the Khandas are believed to vanish entirely.
