Without being frivolous or funny (believe me I've tried):-

While everything changes, nothing is truly lost?

Things aren't really lost when nobody is looking for them.

Things simple are...including history. anything else is perception.

That's the thing. Phoenix is 'looking' for the (perceived?) 'lost of innocence' of the monks when surrrounded by the trappings of decadent modernity.

And a degree course in Business? where profit is king?

I thought history is nothing more than the educated perception of its students?

I see where other people are coming from. A Buddhist "monk" with a degree in Business Admin??? That does sound fishy. I'm just saying, let's just give the monks a chance with this and see where they are going with it.

Not exactly the same thing, considering that book is a novel/satire.

I'm familiar with the 'clapping with one hand' thing....but,

"Ha" ?
Is that like laughing with one lip?

It's a sarcastic laugh to acknowledge that someone made a joke, but that it wasn't funny.
