Raja Yoga Sutra by Patanjali, with commentary by Sri Swami Sivananda - Random SelectionRaja Yoga Sutra Selection # 40
From Discourse I: "Samadhi Pada- On Contemplations"
I.24. KLESA-KARMA-VIPAAKAASHAYAIR APARAAMRSHTAH PURUSHA-VISHESA ISVARAH
'"Ishwara" is that particular center of Divine Consciousness that is untouched by misery, "Karma", or desire'.
'Ishwara' is the immortal Self, or Purusha, with form. He is perceived as being, and yet. He is totally untouched by the ignorance of unhappiness, the law of cause and effect, and carving. For him, the opposites of the phenomenal world, such as pleasure and pain, do not exist.
I.25. TATRA NIRATISAYAM SARVAJNA-BEEJAM
'In him lies the seed of omniscience'.
God, or 'Ishwara', is not just all knowing, but is knowledge itself. In uniting with Him, the highest knowledge is obtained. This does not refer to intellectual knowledge of the entire universe through the eye of wisdom and intuition.
