I think I get what qualia means, intuitively at least:
Feelings and experiences vary widely. For example, I run my fingers over sandpaper, smell a skunk, feel a sharp pain in my finger, seem to see bright purple, become extremely angry. In each of these cases, I am the subject of a mental state with a very distinctive subjective character. There is something it is like for me to undergo each state, some phenomenology that it has. Philosophers often use the term ‘qualia’ (singular ‘quale’) to refer to the introspectively accessible, phenomenal aspects of our mental lives.
In Buddhism what is the word for this "introspectively accessible" aspect of "what it is like"?
Is the term just "phenomena" or is there some other more subtle translation, like "awareness"?
