भगवद् गीता अध्याय 9 श्लोक 3

अश्रद्दधानाः पुरुषा धर्मस्यास्य परन्तप।
अप्राप्य मां निवर्तन्ते मृत्युसंसारवर्त्मनि।।9.3।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 9.3)

।।9.3।।हे परंतप इस धर्मकी महिमापर श्रद्धा न रखनेवाले मनुष्य मेरेको प्राप्त न होकर मृत्युरूपी संसारके मार्गमें लौटते रहते हैं अर्थात् बारबार जन्मतेमरते रहते हैं।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

So the question may arise that if the implementation of this supreme wisdom is so easy to practice then why isnt everyone performing it and freeing themselves from transmigration in samsara or the perpetual cycle of birth and death. Lord Krishna is answering this question in this verse. Persons who are lacking in faith in Lord Krishna do not accept this eternal wisdom in spite of the fact that there is no knowledge superior to this wisdom in any medium from any source. So it is assured that such persons are trapped in samsara. Others may have attempted to increase their faith by other methods and means; but without bhakti or pure loving devotion for Lord Krishna such persons are automatically recycled back into another body again and again in the worlds of mortals and subject to pursuit by death who captures all beings.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna uses the word dharmasya meaning acts of eternal righteousness and is the sacred means to acquire upasana or communion with the Supreme Lord. Its virtue is that it has the Supreme Lord as its only goal and is very joyful and exhilarating to perform. It achieves for the aspirant who faithfully engages in it continuously the highest result as it bequeaths direct realization of the Supreme Lord. The word asraddadhanah means those devoid of faith. Whoever having the golden opportunity after thousands upon thousands of lifetimes to worship the Supreme Lord but are found lacking in determination and attention as well as fervent longing due to insufficient faith, fail to reach Lord Krishna and instead are forced to be propelled into the lethal current of samsara the perpetual cycle of birth and death which is very terrible. Oh how dangerous and perilous is human existence!
