13. Footprints

The symbol of Buddha's feet "Buddhapada" is an emblem representing Buddhist teaching, and symbolises Buddha's continued presence on earth.

While visiting India I came across the symbol at various intervals and have an abiding affection for it. I wish other religions had the same humility and quiet, gentle wisdom of Buddhism. The symbol really does carry a kind of innate serenity and simplicity which I find inspiring.
