Is this from his translation of taittirIya upanishad with commentaries?

I seemed to get that feeling too.

I'm puzzled why you refer to ghaTa and ghaTadeSa (ghaTAkASa??) here.

The reason is that my understanding/analysis is itself clouded.  I am not
very clear/confident on the analysis of the following:

1.  Relationship between the existence of the objective world and the
perception of these objects by the knower - their sequence, their process,
their dependence (if at all).  I have some understanding, but not enough
(not to ask the above question-:))

2.  Whatever I have read seems to make sense only in an intellectual sense,
but I am not able to feel it happening in me ie., the process of perceiving
the objects is still one single act in my experience, I cannot feel the
sub-parts (as described in whatever books I have read).  So I seem to have
to constantly refer, as the knowledge is still not mine !!

famous vedAntaparibhAshA and vedAntasAra are highly recommended.

Do these books deal about the question I have asked above ?
