Definitions

Mipham Rinpoche states:

Forgetfullness muṣitasmṛtitā is to be unclear and forget a virtuous object. It is the erroneous Mindfulness that accompanies a disturbing emotion, and it is the opposite of being mindful. It forms the support for distraction of mind.

The Abhidharma-samuccaya states:

What is forgetfulness? It is it fleeting inspection which is simultaneous with and on the same level as the emotions. It functions as the basis of distraction.

Alexander Berzin explains:

Forgetfulness (brjed-nges). Based on recollection of something toward which we have a disturbing emotion or attitude, forgetfulness is losing our object of focus so that it will wander to that disturbing object. Forgetfulness serves as the basis for mental wandering (rnam-par g.yeng-ba).
