Hi Kalden Yungdrung!

I don't think it is wise to maintain that present exists, and past and future do not exist. Even Buddhas can remember the past and see to the future. How would that be possible if they do not exist? or if they are somehow different from the present ?

dear friends, from my perspective the moment is the higher Self, the True Self. this self has no I or Mine. it is not a self. infact since the Self does not exist neither to does the present moment and since the present is non existent so also are the future and the past.

there is actually no self whatsoever, anywhere, neither does anyone or anything have a mind. the Fundmental Mind is the Fundamental Self. there is no mind, there is no self.

with love from White Lotus.
in any matters of importance. dont rely on me. i may not know what i am talking about. take what i say as mere speculation. i am not ordained. nor do i have a formal training. i do believe though that if i am wrong on any point. there are those on this site who i hope will quickly point out my mistakes.
