Difference between ‘Pureness’, ‘naive’ and Innocence’


Innocence ? is the beginning stage of pureness without wisdom to see through all the blindness

Pureness ? includes innocence but is above innocence. With wisdom to see through the blindness and able to remain pure.

That’s why we say Amitahba
Buddha Pure Land ?? , not innocent land.?

Grow up – blind innocent is the seed of suffering ?

Stay pure – wise intention to create joy for every life ?



Sean Free: Cool. So Innocent is still naive and curious but being pure is through wisdom? ?


Sifu: Innocent is no good or bad, but can be both way .

Without develop wisdom, innocent is just seed of suffering, because innocent is blind pure .

When innocent through curious , and observing eternal wisdom self-being heart

Then blind disappear ..
innocent becoming pure kind , care , wise , joyful
Heart ??

Innocent is neutral

Naive is surly blind bad innocent ??

So naive is not the same as innocent
