Smṛtibala (स्मृतिबल) or simply Smṛti refers to the “strength of mindfulness” and represents one of the “five powers” (pañcabala) as defined in the Dharma-saṃgraha (section 48), itself forming part of the “thirty-seven things on the side of awakening” (bodhipākṣika-dharma). The Dharma-samgraha (Dharmasangraha) is an extensive glossary of Buddhist technical terms in Sanskrit (eg., smṛti-bala). The work is attributed to Nagarjuna who lived around the 2nd century A.D.
