Saṃsmarat (संस्मरत्) (Cf. Saṃsmarantī) refers to “remembering”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.24 (“Śiva consents to marry Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, after Nandīśvara spoke to the Gods: “Thus the gods eulogised Śiva with many piteous entreaties. They cried loudly being agitated by their devotion. Viṣṇu accompanied by me spoke out many piteous words, remembering [i.e., saṃsmarat] Śiva with great devotion. Śiva was thus eulogised by the gods, Viṣṇu and me. He, the great lord, ceased His meditation due to His attachment for His devotees”.
