Please help me to a search a sutra,

In that sutra Guatam Buddha tells that he has 32 special features and then he again says that he has no 32 features.
He has......, he has not....

Probably he tell all this to sariputta'

In every sentence he repeats "He is...... He is not.......

Diamond Sutra
Profile Picture: "The Foaming Monk"
The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.
