Dear Sri Raghav Kumar, I fear I may not be able to put my understanding in writing because my capacity to put my understanding of the spirit of the mantra in writing is very limited.The Essence of the teaching of this mantra is " one is not the thoughts or feelings (mind) but he is the knower/ illuminer of the thoughts/feelings". I request you to get the detailed explanation of the mantra in the light of Sri Shankara's commentary to that mantra from your Revered Guru. He should be able to help you in the matter. I may please be excused.
With respectful namaskars,Sreenivasa Murthy.

Namaste sreenivasa murthy ji
You have quoted some relevant and direct instructions from shruti about
AtmA viz., pratibodha-viditam matam...
It would be nice if you could share with members , what exactly or how the
meaning of this verse was elaborated or taught to you in much more detail,
(regarding the relevant verse from kenopaniShad viz.,
Pratibodha-viditam etc ...) to better appreciate this important mantra.
