    Dear Steve, Nina, and Jim, Thank you all for your comments on my earlier translation of this sentence. Existence makes more sense to me now than good

      Dear Steve, Nina, and Jim,
      Thank you all for your comments on my earlier
      translation of this sentence. "Existence" makes more
      sense to me now than "good fortune", especially in
      light of how "bhava" is commonly used in the suttas.

      manussaa bhava.m icchanti
      humans / existence / wish for
      Humans wish for existence

      With gratitude,
      John
