I asked this question because, the term pratyagaatman comes twice in X:20
commentary of shankara. In both places, Krishna Warrier translates it as
Subject (with capital S).
aham aatma pratyagaatma guDaakesha
aham aatma pratyagaatma nityam dheyaH
I thought it is used as Subject in the sense of Seer (like in
dR^ik-dR^ishya). Also like pratyakSham, the pratyak in pratyagaatman is
used in that sense. At least I thought so.
I see your point. I think the Subject is aatman, which is jiivaatman with
limitations and paramaatman when the limitations are removed.
