Is Arahantship a Synchronization with Time?

Post by thang » Fri Mar 08, 2019 10:48 pm

Is arahant's mind fixed permanently in the present moment ?
Is Arahantship a Permanent-Synchronization with the time-stream ?
How Abhidhamma describes this?
"Bhikkhus, whatever the Tathāgata speaks, _ all that is just so and NOT otherwise."

Arahatship is Akalika (not subject to time)
Generally, time means the change.
Nibbana is unchanging.

It's true.
Is that same when an arahant not in phala samapatti/nirodha samapatti and doing daily chores?

Interesting question.
I can recall I have raised a similar question in the past.
Unfortunately, I can't answer your question.
