Buddha Translated

I believe it was Buddha that said, Life is pain, however translations over thousands of years can get rather distorted. The Hindi Sanskrit scripts were translated to Cantonese and Mandarin, later translated into Greek and Latin, and then for some reason back into Mandarin and Cantonese. The first translation into English was found at the bottom of a Bazooka bubble gum comic where it said, Fortune: Life is Pain. Buddha.

Modern scholars that have revisited the ancient manuscripts have discovered that the true translation was closer to Life is life, which was followed up by Pain is pain, but as simple as these statements seem, they still ring with a depth one can ponder for quite some time. With this thinking one could easily add, Goats are goats, or my favorite, What time is lunch?

Discussing philosophy of this sort raised the question if Buddha was hungry and simply wanted a sandwich from the famous bakery cafe, Au Bon Pain. Not being an expert in any ancient Asian languages I may be Confucius. I think I’ll go make a sandwich.
