A transcendentalist must be imbued with some expertise in observation to be able to thrive. Four types of observations are discernible: open, focused, structured, and systematic observations. I was wondering about the type of observation that General Arjuna embarked on just before the commencement of the battle of Kurukshetra, in the Indian sub-continent, as recorded in the Bhagavad Gita As It Is. Any thought on this?
