Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Lakkhana Sutta:The thirtieth sutta of the Dīgha Nikāya.

It gives an account of the thirty two special marks of the superman (mahāpurisalakkhanāni) which signify that their possessor will be either a world emperor (Cakkavatti) or a Buddha.

The sutta definitely states that these marks are entirely due to good deeds done in former births and can only be maintained in the present life by goodness.D.iii.142 79; the sutta is quoted in Mil.p.405.
