I have a fascination with Buddhist monks. I take photos of them whenever I spot one. I like to talk to them too. I can understand how someone can dedicate their entire life to the teachings of Buddha or any other religion and faith but to live in such an austere lifestyle and discipline for me is quite amazing. I guess this could be the lesson and the key to happiness. Comfort is relative and subjective. Maybe if we accept that material goods does not bring us real and sustaining happiness, we might find inner peace within ourselves.
