    entire life to this task and the well-being of
    the religion, as a whole.

    worldly life, he still has a lot to do withthe
    welfare of the society. They are the only people
    who can solve the problems of a follower of
    Buddhism. Hence, their focus lies on their
    followers they help their followers by advising
    them on all stages of life.

    engages himself in various social activities.

    other charitable institutions that are run by
    Buddhist monks.
