Buddha was hench

“In ‘A Bull of A Man’ John Powers seeks to reinvigorate the Buddha and his early disciples, restoring to them the masculinity that the authors of the Pali canon clearly intended them to have. Powers’ readings of the early biographies of the Buddha show that the story is one of heroic and manly self-control… While their chastity may have yoked their seminal energies for the pursuit of the exalted goal of liberation, their minds appear to have remained with their manhood.” http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674064034&content=reviews&fbclid=IwAR2yn36rTR9bUtxmwXeNP39RpZouG6RFpSU1fkx2M81fcirxXpNyVzAgRlU
