“So the power of innocence is such a guiding factor. There’s a difference between ignorance and innocence. If you are innocent, then to you nothing is important except for love.
For an innocent person who is not conditioned, who is not egoistical, who is not so-called mature, it is the love that it understands.
It doesn’t care for any wealth, any power, anything; but the love that it can feel, the pure love of a person. Innocent person has no understanding of gaining anything out of the love he receives or he gives, no sense at all.
Innocence is the basis of all the dharmas.
If you have no innocence you cannot follow dharma because if you are dharmic, it is maybe your mental attitude, maybe egoistical, maybe because you are born in a religion, because somebody has told you about it.
It’s going to be very superficial. Unless and until it is embedded in the quality of innocence, dharma has no meaning. In that state you are dharmic.
You are beyond any thinking about it, of any deductions about it, but you are dharmic. You cannot be adharmic. You cannot be – as the manifestation of innocence is morality.”
