The Chapter IX continues....

Verse 45:-  The future impediment has been illustrated in the

in three births.

Verse 46:-  In the Gita, it has been told that a Yogi who has not
attained illumination in this life, may be freed from the impediments
after many births.  Yet his practice of enquiry is never fruitless.

(Bhagavad Gita 6.41-45)

Verse 47:- Because of his practice of enquiry such a Yogi enters

desires, he is born again in a pious and prosperous family.

Verse 48:-  Or, if he has no worldly desires, he is born in a

with Brahma.

(Mundaka  Upanishad 3.2.6; Brahadaranyaka Up. 6.2.15)

The predominant tendency determines the next birth.We may not be aware of our supressed desires.
