Sāṃsārika (सांसारिक) refers to a “worldly man”, according to the Amṛtasiddhi, a 12th-century text belonging to the Haṭhayoga textual tradition.—Accordingly, “Even a Buddha, as long as [he remains] unperfected [by means of the practice taught in the Amṛtasiddhi ], is considered a worldly man (sāṃsārika)”.

Sāṃsārika (सांसारिक) refers to the “world of transmigration”, according to the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] [The Yogin] should avoid one who says, ‘I am the knower of Brahma’ [but who is also] attached to performing [Vedic] sacrifices [that are] connected to the world of transmigration (sāṃsārika-kriyāyukta). [Such a person] has lost the benefit of both [Vedic] action and the [Upaniṣadic knowledge of] Brahma [and should be avoided] just as [a Brahmin avoids] an untouchable. [...]”.
