Much has been written on 108 as a holy number. It may represent:
The other day another reason came to me.
One is the numerological representation for the Sun.
Eight is the numerological representation for Saturn.
Zero is the same as all, infinity, in a sense, since one divided by each approaches the other (assuming here that zero is being approached from the right, sinceVedic math does not tend to use negative numbers).
So, 108 represents all between Sun and Saturn, which is to say our whole solar system, unifying the domain and range of astrology with one’s body, one’s lineage, the Ganga, and divine geometry.
Jai Guru Dev.
