We come into the conditioned from the unconditioned when born.
If an infant was taught Buddhism from birth or childhood before their minds get conditioned, would it be easier for them to understand the Dharma and reach Nirvana, since their minds would be more open? Nowadays children are conditioned to enjoy pretty much the same sense pleasures that adult’s desire (i.e. parents giving an IPad to their child before bed or to keep them silent). What if a child was taught the Dharma from birth with little distractions?
The less one has learnt about this world that is created from illusion, the easier it would be to understand such teachings. I think it’s difficult for ME to understand some of the more complex concepts because of my conditioning which has built walls around my open mind and heart. It’s like my mind trying to swim upstream against the currents of my conditioning.
I will keep swimming though!
