Buddha's Major and Minor Marks

Anyone know of a source that offers explanation on each of the Major and Minor marks of the Buddha? I have texts that contain the lists, but some of these need explanation - "Gait like a goose king" for instance... is it something like Mick Jagger's rooster thing? Jokes aside, suggestions appreciated.

Re: The essence of the Buddhist schools in one sentence

I think all of the schools teach the same "essence": that we must see reality. They differ in method.
