Buddhism

There is an element in Buddhism that seems to deprive life of its value.

I can see that control over one's emotions and going beyond the self are good things, but Buddhism goes too far.

Of course you eliminate suffering if you renounce all things which are valuable in life, both material, physical and emotional, affective. The things which are beautiful, that make life worth living. The things which create strong attachemnts, attractions, feelings, connections.
