"And what is the result (vipāka) of perception (saññā, cognition)? Perception has expression (vohāra, language) as its result, I tell you. However a person perceives (re-cognizes) something, that is how he expresses it: 'I have this sort of perception.' This is called the result of perception."
Katamo ca, bhikkhave, saññānaṃ vipāko? Vohāra-vepakkaṃ, bhikkhave, saññaṃ vadāmi. Yathā yathā naṃ sañjānāti tathā tathā voharati, evaṃ saññī ahosinti. Ayaṃ vuccati, bhikkhave, saññānaṃ vipāko.
"And what is the cause by which perception comes into play? Contact is the cause by which perception comes into play."
