2. MEMORY—A REVIVAL OF SAMSKARA
The Samskaras (impressions) are embedded in the subconscious mind or Chitta.
The subconscious mind is otherwise known as the unconscious mind.
Subjective mind, subconscious mind, unconscious mind and Chitta are synonymous terms.
The seat of this subconscious mind is the cerebellum or hindbrain.
You can recall the past experiences from the storehouse of Samskaras in the subconscious mind.
The past is preserved even to the minutest detail.
Even a bit is never lost.
When the fine Samskaras come up to the surface of the conscious mind back again as a big wave, when the past Vritti comes back to the surface of the conscious mind again by recollection, it is called memory or Smriti.
No memory is possible without the help of Samskara.
