We who follow the path of the Buddha whether, monks or laity, should learn to be of ‘Service to Society’. The laity has many different ways and opportunities of providing service to society. As monks, our service to society is essentially by teaching and living the Buddha's message. From the earliest times, it was the monks who saved the society from the brink of decay and destruction and led the people on the correct path .The entire life of a monk is dedicated to social service. The laity will be performing social service in a limited manner compared to monks whose service starts from the day they enter the Order of Monks till the day they pass away. From the partaking of the first alms offered to them on that day of ordination, they devote their whole life to the needs of the people.
