Namaste Praveen Ji,
I agree that the jIva experiences subtle objects. But in the current
context, I am only meaning that the subtle objects are not any subtle
objects, but only those that form part of the jIva himself. i am
understanding the sukshma shaRira as part of jIva. This understanding in
the current context is also borne out by the bhAshya itself.

विषयित्वेन भवतीति तैजसः । विश्वस्य सविषयत्वेन प्रज्ञायाः स्थूलाया
भोज्यत्वम् ; इह पुनः केवला वासनामात्रा प्रज्ञा भोज्येति प्रविविक्तो भोग
इति । >>.
