Thirty-two major marks

Thirty-two primary signs that are indications of a great person and which arise as the result of the positive force built up in previous lives by constructive actions corresponding to each. They appear on the bodies of Sambhogakaya and Supreme Nirmanakaya Buddhas, as well as on the bodies of Chakravartin cosmic emperors.
