Patanjali advises his audience to choose an ishta-devata, a deity of their choice. Thus God is all-good; God is all-merciful.

Just as the sun evaporates large quantities of water by its potent rays and later returns the water to the earth in the form of rain, similarly, a saintly person accepts all types of material objects with his material senses, and at the appropriate time, when the proper person has approached him to request them, he returns such material objects.* I must assume then that by performing vedic yajnas, one is also able to bring clouds to the region.
