The monk said people and the way of living had changed a lot. "Science and technology have provided many items for our comfort. But have we become happier than before?"
Buddha identified the reasons of all our unhappiness and advised us to cleanse our mind and get rid of greed and jelousy in this very life.
"Our problems lie in our mind and there exist the solutions too. But most of us blame the outside world and other people. So me take to drinking alcohol for temporary relief but it aggravates the problem", he said.
Altogether 3000 fishes were released in rivers, fruits distributed among patients in hospitals, lamps of wisdom were lit, hymns were recited by the monks during the month long celebration at the local Gonpa.
