Is that the crux of Buddhism - since we are instructed to dismiss even pleasant feelings like bliss, peace? It appears that the Buddha wanted us to overcome not only pain but also pleasure, and in fact all feelings and sensations. That is why zen masters, especially, ask their students not to dwell on any feeling, however extraordinary.
So I am assuming that the primary goal of Buddhism is to reach a state beyond dualities - no sorrow or happiness, no activity or inaction, no high or low, and so on. Is this correct?
