What does PADA mean?

Pada
Pada or pāda is the Sanskrit term for "foot", with derived meanings "step, stride; footprint, trace; vestige, mark". The term has a wide range of applications, including any one of four parts, or any sub-division more generally, e.g. a chapter of a book. In Sanskrit metre, pāda is the term for "metrical foot". As a measure of length, a pada amounts to 12 or 15 fingers' breadth, or 1/2 or 1/3 or 3/7 of a Prakrama. In Sanskrit grammar, a pada is any inflected word. In Buddhist tradition, pāda is the term for a symbolic "Buddha's footprint". Buddha’s footprints symbolized his presence, and his image and iconography developed several centuries after he had died. There are also several landmarks venerated as "footprints" of Hindu deities. For example, Sri Pada is a rock formation in Sri Lanka venerated as the footprint of Buddha in Buddhist tradition, the footprint of Shiva in Hindu tradition, and the footprint of Adam in Muslim tradition.
