The unsuccessful yogi, after many, many years of enjoyment on the planets of the pious living entities, is born into a family of righteous people, or into a family of rich aristocracy. prapya punya-krtam lokan usitva sasvatih samah sucinam srimatam gehe yoga-bhrasto ‘bhijayate prapya–after achieving; punya-krtam–of those who performed pious activities; lokan–planets; [...]

By virtue of the divine consciousness of his previous life, he automatically becomes attracted to the yogic principles–even without seeking them.

And of all yogis, the one with great faith who always abides in Me, thinks of Me within himself, and renders transcendental loving service to Me–he is the most intimately united with Me in yoga and is the highest of all.
