Sanskrit Quote from Tarkasaṅgrahaḥ

Source – तर्कसङ्ग्रहः 31 (tarkasaṅgrahaḥ 31)

When we say we 'know' something, we either retrieve a memory of it (having experienced it ourselves or having heard or read about it) or are experiencing it at the moment. The 'experience' aspect of knowledge features in René Descartes's famous "I think, therefore I am", where he deduces his own existence from the knowledge (present experience) that he is thinking (at the present moment). When he's no longer consciously aware of these thoughts, the knowledge about his existence comes from the memory of the above deduction from present experience. Here 'experience' is not in the sense of 'past experience' or 'accumulated experiences', which is simply a 'memory', the other form of knowledge. So the question to be asked here is, who we really are?

Sanskrit Quote from Tarkasaṅgrahaḥ

स्मृतिभिन्नं ज्ञानमनुभवः।

smṛtibhinnaṃ jñānamanubhavaḥ।

Hindi translation:
अनुभव स्मृति से अलग एक ज्ञानावस्था है।

English translation:
Experience is a state of knowledge apart from memory.
