अनुस्मृतेश्च ॥ २५ ॥
anusmṛteśca || 25 ||
anusmṛteḥ—On account of memory; ca—and.
25. And on account of memory (the permanency of the experiencer has to be recognized).
A further refutation of the momentariness of things is given here. If everything is momentary, the experiencer or enjoyer of something must also be momentary. But that the enjoyer is not momentary and abides longer is realized from the fact that people have the memory of past experiences. Memory is possible only in a person who has previously experienced it, for what is experienced by one man is not remembered by another. So the agent of the experience and the remembrance being the same, he is connected with at least two moments—which refutes the doctrine of momentariness.
