Ten Epithets
Some Buddhists meditate on (or contemplate) the Buddha as having ten characteristics (Ch./Jp. 十號):
thus gone (Skt: tathāgata)
a worthy one (Skt: arhat)
perfectly self-enlightened (Skt: samyak-saṃbuddha)
perfected in knowledge and conduct (Skt: vidyā-caraṇa-saṃpanna )
well gone (Skt: sugata)
unsurpassed (Skt: anuttara)
knower of the world (Skt: loka-vid)
leader of persons to be tamed (Skt: puruṣa-damya-sārathi)
teacher of the gods and humans (Skt: śāsta deva-manuṣyāṇaṃ)
the Blessed One or fortunate one (Skt: bhagavat)
These characteristics are frequently mentioned in the Pali Canon as well as Mahayana teachings, and are chanted daily in many Buddhist monasteries.
Most schools of Buddhism have also held that the Buddha was omniscient. However, the early texts contain explicit repudiations of making this claim of the Buddha
