तदा द्रष्टुः स्वरूपेऽवस्थानम् ॥३॥
tadā draṣṭuḥ svarūpe-'vasthānam ||3||

[RS] 1.3 For finding our true self (drashtu) entails insight into our own nature.

[JW] 1.3 Then the Seer [that is, the Self,] abides in himself.

[SS] 1.3 Then the Seer [Self] abides in His own nature. [p6]

[TD] 1.3 Then the ability to understand the object fully and correctly is apparent. [p150]

[EB] 1.3 When that is accomplished, the seer abides in its own true nature. [p22]

JHT: Searching the web for "draṣṭuḥ" lead to TKV Desikachar profile, and another Yoga Sutra commentary by Madhvacharya, Michael Beloved.

Interesting concept the true self/seer/Seer. TD does not mention the true self at all. SS puts greater importance to the term referring to it as Seer/Self. EB does not give caps to seer.

Is drastuh the core of what it means to be a person?

Is the false self the main state we reside in?

How can we be witness to the Seer? Image: mirror reflecting on it self, reflections continuing on into infinity.

Is it possible be aware of the Seer?
