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 is what to avoid.


The five wrong ways of remembering are remembering the words but forgetting the meaning, remembering the meaning but forgetting the words, remembering them both but with no understanding, remembering them with a wrong understanding and remembering them in the wrong order. [1]

Tibetan:

ཚིག་འཛིན་ལ་དོན་མི་འཛིན་པ།

དོན་འཛིན་ལ་ཚིག་མི་འཛིན་པ།

བརྡའ་མ་འཕྲོད་པར་འཛིན་པ།

གོང་འོག་ནོར་ནས་འཛིན་པ

།ལོག་པར་འཛིན་པ་དང་ལྔ་སྤངས་དགོས།
