Was the Buddha a pessimist?

For centuries in India, the Buddha and his teachings have been accused as being pessimistic. These misunderstandings developed when the Buddha’s teachings were lost in India and most of the world. This was largely due to disappearance of the applied teachings (the technique of Vipassana meditation) in the initial years and loss of words of the Buddha (Pali Canon) in the later years.
