Buddhahood – A state of perfect enlightenment sought in Buddhism
You can wear a Buddha hoody (Buddhahood) if you reach the highest accolade of enlightenment. You even get an emblem patch on the back that says "Enlightened One".
Buddhahood is ranked highest of the ten realms of Buddhist practice, and achieving it is the main aim of a Buddhist practitioner.
To reach Buddhahood, a person must cultivate a peaceful, compassionate and generous outlook in their daily lives.
According to the Buddha, all living beings can attain Buddhahood.
He described the state of Buddhahood as having four attributes:

While there are lots of opinions on how to achieve Buddhahood, all schools and traditions of Buddhism agree that it involves purifying the mind of desire, aversion and ignorance.
