There are 108 distinguishing marks on both the soles of Buddha. They represent the 3 worlds. 59 indicating the inanimate world (Okasaloka), 21 indicating the animate world (Sattaloka) and 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 8 out of the 108 royal astrologers present were asked to comment on them. 7 said that the child would either become the Buddha or the Cakkavati (Universal Monarch). Only Sudatta Kondamma, the youngest of them made a single prediction that the royal child was destined to become the Buddha. This is because there was the image of Cakkavatti on the child's soles and a personage superior to a Cakkavatti could only be a Buddha.
佛足足底共有一百零八個不同的圖案,是三世間的再現,有五十九個圖案為器世間 (okasaloka),二十一個圖案為有情世間 (sattaloka),二十八個圖案為業世間 (sankharaloka)。其意義為佛陀是超越這三世間的。這些圖案展現出佛陀誕生時的種種好,當時有一百零八位皇室占卜師,其中八位被問及要給予評斷時,七位預言這小孩不是成為佛陀就是轉輪聖王。只有最年輕的Sudatta Kondamna預言王子只會成為佛陀,因為王子的腳底有轉輪聖王的圖案。而比轉輪聖王更為尊崇者,只有佛陀。

In worshiping the108 distinguishing marks on the soles of the Buddha, one should therefore remember to one's 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 All Things Wordle (Tilokantagu)
The Knower Of The Three Worlds (Lokavidu)
我們為了自積福報,禮讚佛足底一百零八個圖案,應知佛陀是「世界之主(Tilokagga)」、「觸末法(Tilokantagu)」、「三世之覺者(Lokavidu)」
