Lakshmi Narasimha Pancharatnam by Adi Shankara at Stutimandal

(Click on the above link for the full poem)

Sample: If you wish to please the lord-like body of you, then regularly do the prayers of Narahari. (The reason being that) Adding decoration to the object getting reflected also increases the decoration of the reflection. O bumblebee like mind! You are uselessly wandering in the deserts of metempsychosis, which is without nectar; adore and seek the pollen from the lotus-like faultless feet of Lakṣmī and Narasiṁha.[1]

What is the Sanskrit word that you translate as metempsychosis?

Bhavasaagara is translated as metempsychosis.

It has been used by other translators in the past as well.

Wishing well,
