Mantram : 8.
Discussion-5. "The Self is the Seer" .....
It is a declaration that the Lfe-spark in us is the real vitality behind the eyes that see, the ears that hear, the nose that smells, the tongue that tastes, and the skin that feels.
In fact, if the Life-principle is removed from the sense-organs, they, in themselves are impotent to register any impressions of their objects.
To experience the world-of-objects, we need, not only the sense-organs, but it is equally necessary that the sense-organs must function, presided over by the grace of the Self.
Thus the Self or the Atma or Jivatma is the "Seer" ( Kavi ) in all the sense-organs, the mind and the intellect.
None of the activities of perception, feeling or thinking can be experienced by us if we are not 'charged' by the Life-principle in us.
