Why 108? The number 108 has long been considered a sacred number in Yoga. Traditionally, malas, or garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 beads (plus one for the “guru bead,” around which the other 108 beads turn like the planets around the sun). A mala is used for counting as you repeat a mantra—much like the Catholic rosary.
The number 108 is considered sacred by several Eastern religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism , connected yoga and dharma based practices. The individual digits 108, 1. 0, & 8 represent one thing, nothing and everything ( infinity ), representing the belief of the ultimate reality of the universe as being ( paradoxically ) simultaneously one , emptiness , and infinite .
Renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture viewed 108 as a number of the wholeness of existence. This number also connects the Sun, Moon, and Earth: The average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters. Such phenomena have given rise to many examples of ritual significance.
