The five wrong ways of remembering (Wyl. mi 'dzin pa lnga) are:

  1. remembering the words but forgetting the meaning,
  2. remembering the meaning but forgetting the words,
  3. remembering them both but with no understanding,
  4. remembering them with a wrong understanding and
  5. remembering them in the wrong order. [1]

The right conduct in terms of listening to the teachings is described in terms of what to avoid and what to do, so the five wrong ways of remembering belong to the category of what to avoid.
