When one picks up this knowledge that was interrupted, he should know that he should now finish the balance and complete the yogic process. One should not take the chance of finishing up the process in another birth but should resolve to finish it in this life. We should be determined in this way: “Somehow or other in my last life, I did not finish my spiritual cultivation. ” Thus after leaving this body one will not again take birth in this material world, where birth, old age, disease and death are omnipresent, but will return to Kåñëa.

These facilities are given by the Lord, who is always willing to give us the means to attain Him. Kåñëa simply wants to see that we are sincere. In the Çrémad-Bhägavatam it is stated that every particular person has his own duty in life, regardless of his position and regardless of his society. If, however, he gives up his prescribed duty and somehow—either out of sentiment or association or craziness or whatever—takes shelter of Kåñëa, and if, due to his immaturity, he falls from the devotional path, still there is no loss for him.

Since it is said that six months on earth is equal to one day on the higher planets, the unsuccessful yogé stays on these higher planets for many, many years. Vedic literatures describe their lifetimes as lasting ten thousand years. So even if one is a failure, he is promoted to these higher planets. But one cannot remain there perpetually.
