  • 54 letters in the Sanskrit alphabet with a male/female side (=108)

  • Stonehedge is 108 feet in diameter

  • All Mala beads have 108 beads.

  • There are 108 Upanishads (a collection of Indian religious and philosophical texts from as early as 800 BCE)

  • The ratio of the diameter of the sun to the earth= 108

  • The ratio of the earth to the moon= 108

  • According to Ayurveda and Chinese medicine there are 108 sacred (marma) points in the body

  • A bell is chimed 108 times in Buddhist temples in Japan to finish the old year and welcome the new one.
