Abstract. The smriti or the memory is the vital part of our mental body. In fact, it is essential for every unit (in human \& animal order) in existence. Here the authors are specific to the human order. Memory, specifically to the mental body has been categorized in many ways in the literature. Here the authors are classifying the memory in a novel way based on the analysis done of the existing classification. Further the strength \& limitations of memory are also discussed. Memory can also be seen as the boundary or the limitation. The same concept has been described over here. Memory causes vrittis (others being vikalpa or verbal delusions, viparyaya or false knowledge, nidra or sleep, swapn or dreams) which create opacity for the mind stuff or chitt visibility and hence hurdle in the path of self actualisation. Vrittis in the literature has been described as the form the mind takes upon encountering above-mentioned ripples. This can be further viewed as an anti-force restricting the human order to propagate towards cosmic (higher level) identity. Location of the memory storage and the time period before rehearsal also determines the nature of the memory. Based on this the authors have proposed to categorize the memory as volatile \& non-volatile
