Diamond Sutra, chapter 18

“Should one look for a teacher with a perfect physical body?”

“No, we should not be attached to appearances. Like everything else, appearances are temporary and illusionary.”

We shouldn’t be attached to things like appearance. It’s said that the Buddha had a very striking appearance. He is making sure Subhuti is not attached to him because of this.
