Bhagavad Gita Chapter 6 Verse 42

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 6 श्लोक 42

अथवा योगिनामेव कुले भवति धीमताम्।
एतद्धि दुर्लभतरं लोके जन्म यदीदृशम्।।6.42।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

6.42 Or he is born in the family of wise yogis [Persons possessing knowledge of Brahman. (S. concedes that some rare householders also can have this knowledge, and he cites the instances of Vasistha, Agastya, Janaka and Asvapati of olden days, and Vacaspati and the author of Khanada of recent times.)] only. Such a birth as is of this kind is surely more difficult to get in the world.

English Translation - Swami Sivananda

6.42 Or he is born in a family of even the wise Yogis; verily a birth like this is very difficult to obtain in this world.

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

6.42. Or, he is born (rorn) nowhere other than in the family of the intelligent men of Yoga; for, this birth is more difficult to get in the world.
