Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)Source: academia.edu: A Study and Translation of the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā
Asmṛti (अस्मृति) refers to “absence of (mental effort in) recollection” [?], according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “[...] Further, the recollection of the Buddha is not to be attached to any of the Lord’s ways of behavior, to wit: standing, walking, sitting, sleeping, going, coming, speaking, and silence. Since there is no attachment, he does not recollect recollection nor recollect non-recollection. Since there is no mental effort in recollection (asmṛti-manasikāra), he does not recollect the Buddha in the perspective of form, distinguishing marks or any state of things. There is no involvement with any distinguishing mark or object, son of good family, this is therefore the recollection of the Buddha, which is authorized by the Lord”.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings). Extant literature is vast and primarely composed in the Sanskrit language. There are many sūtras of which some of the earliest are the various Prajñāpāramitā sūtras.
