108 is considered a sacred and auspicious number in Hinduism. Ever wondered why? According to Vedas and Upanishads, number of facts and figures had been discovered thousands of years back that are scientifically surprising.
It is the representation of our existence and our universe as a whole. This is properly exemplified when we try to understand the basis behind each number. ‘One' signifies God’s consciousness, ‘zero’ signifies null or void, while ‘eight’ is the embodiment of infinity.
Thus, the number 108 is everything that we are about. It connects the ancient and the modern. In Vedic cosmology (and modern science), it is believed that the average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters.
