    Au contraire, mon frere.

    Actually, I don't even know what it means, therefore I cannot know whether or not it is true. I therefore also know that your claim that I know it's true is false.

    May I share with you a timeless truth on suffering told to me by a Tibetan holy man high up in the mountains. I had trudged for hours without food when he appeared by my side. I told him I was suffering.
    He spake of the elephant trudging through the jungle when a mouse jumps on its back.
    The mouse starts to fornicate with the elephant.
    As the elephant continues walking a coconut falls onto her head,the elephant lets out a loud groan.
    The mouse shouts suffer baby suffer.

    Dukkham is not well defined in English, I think. It is not pain but
    dissatisfaction, incompleteness, etc.

    The Truth is not far from you.

    What I mean by that is this: if you feel dissatisfied and incomplete, then turn to your maker Jesus Christ and you will be made whole.

    Do you really think that is what the Buddha meant?

    I'm a Jew. If I'm made whole I won't be able to make good comedy.

    On the bright side, we don't have hell. And if Christians are right, then
    I'll go to heaven anyway because I am one of the chosen people.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penitent_thief#Prayer_to_the_Good_Thief

    Glorious Saint Dimas, you alone of all the great Penitent Saints were directly canonised by Christ Himself;
    you were assured of a place in Heaven with Him "this day" because of the sincere confession of your sins to Him in the tribunal of Calvary and your true sorrow for them as you hung beside Him in that open confessional;
    you who by the direct sword thrust of your love and repentance did open the Heart of Jesus in mercy and forgiveness even before the centurion's spear tore it asunder;
    you whose face was closer to that of Jesus in His last agony, to offer Him a word of comfort, closer even than that of His Beloved Mother, Mary;
    you who knew so well how to pray, teach me the words to say to Him to gain pardon and the grace of perseverance;
    and you who are so close to Him now in Heaven, as you were during His last moments on earth, pray to Him for me that I shall never again desert Him, but that at the close of my life I may hear from Him the words He addressed to you: "This day thou shalt be with Me in Paradise."
    Amen.[17]
