We create senseless “traditions,” then suffer their consequences.
Buying firecrackers is putting one’s well-being at risk.
No great sage has ever taught that firecrackers and noise would bring happiness.
Good fortune results from good deeds—and contributing to pollution and loud noise isn’t one of them!
