Bhagavad Gita: What is the destination of the unsuccessful transcendentalist ? (Dhyana-Yoga, Text 37, 38, 39 Chapter 6)

arjuna uvaca
ayatih sraddhayopeto
yogac calita-manasah
aprapya yoga-samsiddim
kam gatim krsna gacchati

(Dhyana-yoga, Text 37 Chapter 6)

Kaccin nobhaya-vibhrastas
chinnabhram iva nasyati
apratistho maha-baho
vimudho brahmanah pathi

(Dhyana-yoga, Text 38 Chapter 6)

etan me samsayam krsna
chettum arhasy asesatah
tvad-anyah samsayasyasya
chetta na hy upapadyate

(Dhyana-yoga, Text 39 Chapter 6)

Meaning text 37: Arjuna said: O Krsna, what is the destination  of the unsuccessful transcendentalist, who in the beginning takes to the process of self -realization with faith but who later desists due to worldly-mindedness and thus does not attain perfection in mysticism?

Bhagavad Gita: What is the destination of the unsuccessful transcendentalist ? (Dhyana-Yoga, Text 37 Chapter 6)

***The basic principle of self realization is knowledge that the living entity is not this material body but that he is different from it and that his happiness is in eternal life, bliss and knowledge. Arjuna is inquisitive to know the results of deviation from the path of self-realization

Meaning text 38: O mighty-armed Krsna, does not such a man, who is bewildered from the path of transcendence, fall away from both spiritual  and material success and perish like a river cloud, with no position in any sphere? 

Meaning text 39: This is my doubt, O Krsna, and I ask you to dispel it completely. But for You, no one is to be found who can destroy this doubt.
