In truth, Buddhism is a religion of happiness and bliss, stemming from knowing how to put Suffering/Unsatisfactoriness where it belongs. When one properly interacts with Suffering, suffering itself will instead become the fount of happiness rather than something dreadful to shun.
Since suffering is at the threshold of happiness, the Buddha expounded the Noble Truths on suffering as "dukkhan ariyasaccan", meaning "Suffering is a noble truth." Followers of Buddhism, who have learned its teaching properly and seen that suffering is indeed an inseparable element that accompanies them in life, will live their lives at all times in happiness even when they are buffeted on the battlefield of sufferings.
