At the root of Buddhism is the concept that with life, suffering exists. It is often misstated or misunderstood in Western thinking (and translations) that the Buddha said that "All life is suffering." This comes from a translation of a quote attributed to the Buddha saying . . . birth is suffering, aging is suffering, and death is suffering. However, this statement is misunderstood as suffering being an absolute condition of birth and aging and death.
