Dear Venerable Sung Jin !
Great thanks for Your open words. One of further possible answers to modern challenges could be: the Inner Peace, given us by the Enlightened One. And this could be desirable and reachable for everyone (not only for monks), following the Path. The Inner Peace is the only state which could be an alternative target compared to happiness what is sought by almost everyone of us (whereas the happiness always proves short-lived and vulnerable, at the end...)
Yours in Peace.
