Bhagavad Gita Chapter 6 Verse 42

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 6 श्लोक 42

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

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 6.42)

।।6.42।।अथवा (वैराग्यवान्) योगभ्रष्ट ज्ञानवान् योगियोंके कुलमें ही जन्म लेता है। इस प्रकारका जो यह जन्म है यह संसारमें बहुत ही दुर्लभ है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The destination of one who after a short time has abandoned the practice of yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness was given in the previous verse. Now Lord Krishna describes the destination of the person who has been practising yoga for a long time and almost perfected it before expiring their life. They are born in families of enlightened yogis and sages, perfecting yoga and in possession of Vedic knowledge which leads to moksa or liberation from the material existence. Birth in this family is more advanced than birth in the families of the previous verse which although virtuous and prosperous had not yet engaged in the process of yoga.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

If one somehow or other was diverted and diverged almost at completion from the path of yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness; then they would be born in a family of enlightened sages or those illuminated within from the perfection of yoga. In both these cases it is extremely rare for one to take birth in either situation but when it does occasionally manifest it is the result of the efficacy of yoga that had been almost perfected in the previous life and was not possible to complete due to expiration of life.

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary
