Yoga Sutra 25.
Tatra niratisayam sarvajnabijam
God is the matchless seed of all knowledge.
According to Samkhya the manifestation started as qualities. The
first evolved quality was Satwa. Satwa is clarity, luminosity and
From that base knowledge, Rajas and Tamas manifested which
are passion and movement and condensation, stagnancy sleep, darkness
From Tamas ether, air, fire, water and earth evolved
respectively. By the further combination among them there evolved
the entire Universe.
Looking at Yoga on the point of view of the
Samkhya that was the popular philosophy at the time of the codification
of Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, one could only interpret Satwa the light
and knowledge as the base of creation, which is God and God is the
beginning of Nature.
So Patanjali Maharshi was thinking of an unrivalled,
incomparable, unsurpassed, matchless source of all knowledge and
felt that it is none other than God!
God is the all pervading, illimitable
and unlimited source. This knowledge is omniscient, omni potent and
omni present. That consciousness is itself the incomprehensible seed
of all Knowledge and God is that!
