SB 3.26.47 The sense whose object of perception is sound is called the auditory sense, and that whose object of perception is touch is called the tactile sense.

SB 3.26.48 The sense whose object of perception is form, the distinctive characteristic of fire, is the sense of sight. The sense whose object of perception is taste, the distinctive characteristic of water, is known as the sense of taste. Finally, the sense whose object of perception is odor, the distinctive characteristic of earth, is called the sense of smell.

SB 3.26.49 Since the cause exists in its effect as well, the characteristics of the former are observed in the latter. That is why the peculiarities of all the elements exist in the earth alone.
