Why 108?

  • Sun and Earth: The diameter of the sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth.
  • Sanskrit alphabet: There are 54 letters in the Sanskrit alphabet. Each has masculine and feminine, shiva and shakti. 54 times 2 is 108.
  • Chinese: The Chinese Buddhists and Taoists use a 108 bead mala
  • Planets and Houses: In astrology, there are 12 houses and 9 planets. 12 times 9 equals 108.
  • Heart Chakra: The chakras are the intersections of energy lines, and there are said to be a total of 108 energy lines converging to form the heart chakra.
  • Gopis of Krishna: In the Krishna tradition, there were said to be 108 gopis or maid servants of Krishna.
  • Dance: There are 108 forms of dance in the Indian traditions.
