Commentaries and Reflections
Commentary by TKV Desikachar:
“In observing, we must remember a few more things:
When we are not able to see something,
It is either because something else is more obvious,
or because it is too close to us.”
Commentary by Paul Harvey:
(We may not perceive what is within the range of the senses (Pratyakṣa) because we are:)
Blind or deaf to what is in front of us.
Not relating with what is there.
Seeing something between.
Letting something else dominate.
Confusing with something similar.
