Q. How can we turn ignorance into wisdom?

A. According to the Buddha’s words, we are originally happiness itself, but we are floundering in the ocean of suffering because we can’t see things as they are. To escape from the ocean of suffering, we should turn our ignorance into wisdom.

In Buddhism ignorance means being unable to see things as they are, or being deluded by illusions. On the contrary when we can see things as they are, the ability to see things as they are is referred to as wisdom. So, turning ignorance into wisdom means changing our perspective that is deluded by illusions into the one that is not deluded by them.
