Commentaries and ReflectionsTKV 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.”
(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.
