Purport: Some people are able to reach the stage of deep meditation without contemplation without any resources. It appears that the inborn quality is the only reason. What type of people has it? As far as this question is concerned, then the answer is that it is found in the with the qualities of non-attachment and nature loving. These are the last levels of deep mediation without contemplation. While practicing devotion the yogis reach the stage of non-attachment and immerse with nature, sometimes it so happens that after reaching this level the internal and external body gets destroyed. They take rebirth because they are not destroyed due to their actions and good deeds. But the attainment of deep meditation without contemplation in the previous birth gives the same stage in this life automatically. Therefore in this type of persons the results of previous birth and the practice of removing the conditions of the mind are responsible for the stage of deep meditation without contemplation.

We have to understand the real meaning of Bhavapratyay, Bhav means birth and pratyay means synonym for reason. Therefore bhavapratyay means the stage of deep meditation without contemplation appears to be due to the inborn quality.
