BG 9.21: When they have enjoyed the vast pleasures of heaven, the stock of their merits being exhausted, they return to the earthly plane. Thus, those who follow the Vedic rituals, desiring objects of enjoyment, repeatedly come and go in this world. This verse also says about reincarnation.


Katha Up 2.3.14 : When all desires clinging to the heart of one fall off, then the mortal becomes immortal and here attains Brahman.
