    Last time, when I studied sanskrit for my 10 boards, I had come across a very beautiful word, something like "nalinijalgadtaral..."... which meant something like, "as momentary as a drop of water on a lotus leaf"... It was used to describe the existence of human life.

    Does someone have the actual word? I have forgotten most of sanskrit and so I cannot retranslate. Also, the origins of this phrase/word and its author would also be appreciated. I must have read it in one of my old sanskrit text books.
