法身非相分第二十六 

THE DHARMA BODY IS NOT APPEARANCES, TWENTY-SIX 

“Subhuti, what do you think? 

须菩提!于意云何? 

“Can the Tathagata be recognised by His thirty-two physical characteristics?” 

可以三十二相观如来不? 

Subhuti replied: “Yes, yes, He can.” 

须菩提言:‘如是!如是!以三十二相观如来。’ 

The Buddha said: 

佛言: 

“Subhuti, if the Tathagata can be recognised by His thirty-two physical characteristics, 

须菩提!若以三十二相观如来者, 

“a world ruler (cakravarti) would be the Tathagata.” 

转轮圣王则(即)是如来。’ 

Subhuti said to the Buddha: 

须菩提白佛言: 

“World Honoured One, as I understand your teaching, 

世尊!如我解佛所说义, 

“the Tathagata cannot be recognized by His thirty-two physical characteristics.” 

不应以三十二相观如来。 

Thereupon, the World Honoured One recited the following gatha: 

尔时,世尊而说偈言: 

“He who sees me by outward appearance (And) seeks me in sound, 

若以色见我 以音声求我 

“Treads the heterodox path (And) cannot perceive the Tathagata. 

是人行邪道 不能见如来
