Naivety and the Kilesas

Naivety and the Kilesas.

The only valid motive for writing these notes is for developing clarity. All other motives, no matter how altruistic, are off the mark.

Naivety is essentially not believing that the Kilesas are as bad as they actually are. In this context, “Being with the Knowing” is the ultimate act of defiance.

Further more this gives rise to a strong sense of ultimate victory over the Kilesas. In short, it is only the Arahant who is completely free of naivety.
