Buddhapada actually refers to Buddha's footprint, not foot. It symbolizes the grounding of the transcendent. The image of the Buddha's foot came to me in a dream in which I was turning the foot over in my hands. It was covered in symbols, including a circle on the bottom of the foot, which is traditional for the Buddhapada, I was not conscious of this until I looked into it after having the dream.
