verse 24

Ishwara is that particular Center of divine consciousness which is not affected by poverty, karma, or desires.

Ishwara is the immortal being or Purusha, shaped, and thus can be worshipped. Brahman can not be worshiped beyond name and form, but it is known through the realization.

verse 25

In it lies the seed of omniscience.

God, Ishwara, not only is the Knower of all things but that is the same knowledge and within the forms of Ishwara is the knowledge of creation, preservation and destruction. It is not just intellectual knowledge but knowledge, wisdom and universal reality intuition.

verse 26

He is master of masters from the earliest times and is not subject to time.

The question is: where does this knowledge come from? Brahman or Purusha is the Supreme Master, Supreme Guru. In this way, all the ancient sages who reached the knowledge were connected with the original source even if they were earthly masters. Truth and knowledge are absolute. The 'I' or jiva and atman are really one, the pure "I" merges with God transcended. Jesus said: "I and my father are one". The pure self is that it is not affected by any seed and the father is the transcendental God.
