I'm relatively new to Sanskrit. I've been studying it on my own mainly through the Madras Sanskrit college's online course and some other literature I've acquired and sources I've found online. I'm attempting to translate passages of Avadhuta Gita, a text near and dear to my heart, as a way to push myself further in my studies even though I don't have all the grammatical pieces I need yet. I have two translations of the text to help me.
I'm curious if anyone can help me with this word पुंसाम् pumsAm. I cannot find it anywhere and I'm not sure how it is conjugated at the moment. The closest I can get is the root pums — to increase, which would make sense given the context. The context for the word is given below in the entire passage:
Avadhuta Gita, Chapter 1, Verse 1:
ईश्र्वरानुग्रहादेव पुंसामद्वैतवासना ।
महद्भयपरित्रणाद्विप्राणामुपजायते ॥ १ ॥
