Buddhism is a religion of youth

There is a wrong idea in the society that a person should start his religious life after reaching the age of youth. Therefore, the two words 'upasaka' and 'upasika', which are commonly used to refer to the lay people in Buddhism, are limited to the elderly in current usage. If a young man listens to sermons and cultivates a righteous life, why is the girl disappointed in the world right now? He has to hear sarcastic remarks from his peers like In the temples on Poya days, the elderly people are mostly seen. 

 Elderly people who spend the twilight of their lives in leisure are more inclined towards religion. According to this, some people think that Buddhism is a religion that applies to people who are close to the afterlife after suffering all the hardships of life. It is wrong to think so. 

 Buddhism is a great religion that can be applied to everyday life, which is equally useful for young and old alike. Prince Sidhu is a young man. He became a Buddha at a young age. Many of the sons of the Yasa clan, the Bhaddavaggia princes, who became monks near the Buddha, are young people. Both Kolitha and Upatissa were young people who were used to a fun life by going to festivals. That is, after ordination, both Sariyuth and Mughalan Agasav. The Buddha was also accused of disrupting family life by ordaining her husbands. It also shows that many people were ordained in the Buddhist order in their young lives.

 Monks, the advice of the Buddha is to travel for the sake of the soul of many. Following it, five monks were among the first group of monks to preach the Dharma, while the rest were all young men. Buddhism has grown through the commitment of young people. Young monks are the pioneers of the religious and membership revolution brought about by Buddhism. 

Buddhism is a religion of youth. Adolescence is the period when one's soul is awakened for earthly pleasures. In youth, the tendency to indulge in worldly pleasures is boundless. It is normal for young people to have sexual thoughts based on the goals that bring them pleasure. If there is no proper control under such a mental atmosphere, there is a possibility that the young people will break the social norms and behave. 

For that, there are many doors of destruction open in the society such as drug movies and the internet, where the youth are directed. Therefore, they need the guidance of Buddhism. Mangal, Parabhava Sigalovada Vyaghapajja and other sutras show how the bond between a husband and wife enjoying the beauty of youth maintains the responsibilities and social relationship regarding children. In today's society, it is difficult to keep the young mind well and free. There are forces in the society that make the minds of the youth go crazy.

 Buddhism is not against the enjoyment of the laity. Buddhism opposes the sinful behavior of lust. Controlling the uncontrollable pursuit of lust is a must in youth. It should happen under the constraints of sensuality and social morality. It is difficult to control the illegal behavior of individuals by the existing law of a country. For that, what should be done is to think about yourself and control your mind and body. It requires self-discipline. One should enjoy Kamsapa while respecting the social norms, without clinging to panchakama objects. The correct method for it is shown in Buddhism.

 Mind can be controlled by meditation. Body and speech are controlled by virtue. Penance is the basic virtue of a layman. By observing penance, there will be sense relaxation and spiritual development. The benefit and protection it brings to society is immense. Is it fair to blame the youth for the lack of temple attendance? If you think that our youth is a bad group, it is a mistake. Although we have heard of some isolated cases of misbehavior and misbehavior of some youths, on the whole our youths are very good people. 

Family unity, respect for parents, elders, teachers and helping others can be seen in the youth society. There are also young people who read Buddhist books with interest. The value of our youth can best be felt by comparing it with the youth of non-Buddhist countries who are formed in a different cultural background. In Western countries, girls and boys over the age of sixteen often spend the night with friends. Punishing and reprimanding children is prohibited by law. They should be freed. But the majority of our youths are parents who obey their parents. The great gift they received from being born in a bad country is that knowledge.

 Many young people prefer to engage in group activities with their peers. Social welfare work is enjoyable for them. Therefore, it is useful to create religious activities that develop the virtues of the youth and encourage them to follow the bad customs. The young people want to fulfill the work assigned to them with commitment. There is no fraudulent activity in their intervention. They just need advice from an adult.
