What is your favorite physical characteristic of the Buddha?
Buddha is typically regarded as a very beautiful man according to all standards of beauty and aesthetics. There's no wonder he achieved Nirvana when he did not need to care for his own appearance, the stifling insecurity of many. Very beautiful, all his mind had to focus on was the mind, or rather something transcending even the mind. After all, there is no concept of the Self in Buddhism, with the consciousness's own existence even being questionable, only acknowledged for convenience. His characteristics are well-documented in the Thirty-two Characteristics of a Great Man. What's your favorite characteristic of the beautiful Buddha, more beautiful than the Godhead Himself?
