buddha footprint



The marks on the soles of Buddha.There are a hundred and eight distinguishing marks on both the soles of the Buddha.

They represent the three worlds.1. 59 indicating the inanimate world (Okasaloka) 2. 21 indicating the animate world (Sattaloka) and 3. 28 indicating the world of the Conditioned (Sankharaloka).The essence here is that the Buddha is greater than all the three worlds. These marks became apparent right from the birth of the Buddha when eight out of the hundred and eight royal astrologers present were asked to comment on them.

 Seven of them pre-said that the child would either become the Buddha or the Cakkavatti, the Universal Monarch.Only Sudatta Kondamna, the youngest of them made a single prediction that the royal child was destined to become the Buddha because there was the image of a Cakkavatti on the child soles.

And a personage superior to a Cakkavatti could only be a Buddha.

In worshipping the hundred and eight distinguishing marks on the soles of the Buddha, one should therefore remember to ones benefit that the Buddha is endowed with the attributes of the Chief of the World (Tilokagga), the one who has reached the end of the world and the all things worldly (Tilokantagu), the knower of the three worlds (Lokavidu).
