Why 108?

108 has long been considered a sacred number in Hinduism and yoga. The mala (traditionally used for meditation and mantra) contains 108 beads. The Sanskrit alphabet is comprised of 54 letters. Each letter in the alphabet has both a masculine (Shiva) and feminine (Shakti) energy. 54 multiplied by these two energies is 108. There are 108 Marma points (junctures on the body where two or more types of tissue meet; intersections of the vital life force and prana). These are just a few points of significance, there are more!
