Greetings to everyone interested in Buddhism.

In my post about the Four Noble Truths last time, I wrote:

> One of the salient values of Buddhism is its appreciation the existence of suffering, along with its central focus on suffering as the central spiritual issue.

Given the absence of any ability to edit our posts (a wisely chosen policy of Dr. Bob's), I must post this retraction of my errors, rather than erase and correct my mistake(s).

And that sentence above is a mistake, but only because I wrote it so poorly. The idea it is trying to express is valid and valuable. Here's my second attempt.

The existence suffering is central to Buddhist spirituality. Buddhism begins with the acceptance that pain exists and the release from the state of suffering is the culmination the Buddhist path.

And for now that's what I think says it best or at least better than my first attempt.

Obviously Buddhism is still trying to show me the error(s) of my ways.
