While modern people are enjoying Western scientific achievements, it’s apparent that they have also accepted Western junk culture. In our current situation, we have become more and more fickle, such that we cannot even sit for an hour to calm down. We do not like to study texts or even do meditation. Considering the results of such a vicious circle, how can we acquire happiness?
I suggest that when pursuing material comforts, we need to simultaneously combine modern civilization and traditional culture, and integrate them both into our life and work. On the one hand, it would be helpful to the people around us; on the other, we ourselves can live happily.
