smṛti (Sanskrit; Pāli, sati). Mindfulness or awareness. An alert state of mind that should be cultivated constantly as the foundation for understanding and insight (prajñā). Many meditational practices exist to help develop mindfulness, notably the four Foundations of Mindfulness (smṛti-upasthāna). Smṛti features in many formulations of virtues: it is the third of the Five Powers (bala), the first of the Factors of Awakening (bodhyaṇga), and the seventh of the eight factors of the Eightfold Path.
