Saṃsarga (संसर्ग, “connection”) refers to the “mindfulness (smṛtyupasthāna) by connection (saṃsarga)”, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter XXXI.—When they consider the body at the head of the list, the dharmas of the Path [other than prajñā], coming from causes and conditions, impure or pure, are mindfulness of the body.—When they consider feelings, the mind or dharmas as head of the list, the dharmas of the Path [other than prajñā], coming from causes and conditions, impure or pure, are mindfulness of feelings, mind or dharmas [respectively]. This is mindfulness by connection (saṃsarga).Source: academia.edu: A Study and Translation of the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā
Saṃsarga (संसर्ग) refers to “crowds of people”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “[...] At that time, sixty koṭis of Bodhisattvas, having stood up from the congregation, joined their palms, paid homage to the Lord, and then uttered these verses in one voice: ‘[...] (199) Being mingled with materialists, praising themselves, disparaging noble ones, they will be ignorant and arrogant. (200) Giving up to stay in the wilderness, always taking pleasure among the crowds of people (saṃsarga), practicing worldly incantations, they will be attached to [the view] that there is a permanent substance. [...]’”.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings).

General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Saṃsarga (संसर्ग) refers to “connections” (with children, etc.), according to the commentary on the 11th century Jñānārṇava (verse 2.1), a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Is one not disturbed by [family] attachments (com.—putrādisaṃsargaiḥ—‘connections with children, etc.’)? Is this body not cut down by diseases? Does death not open its mouth? Do calamities not do harm every day? Are hells not dreadful? Are not sensual pleasures deceiving like a dream? Because of which, having discarded one’s own benefit, you have a desire for the world which is like a city of Kiṃnaras”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
