Why 108 days?

  • 108 is a Harshad Number, an integer divisible by the sum of its digits. Harshad in Sanskrit means “joy-giver.”

  • 108 marma points, or sacred places of the body. There are said to be 108 energy lines, or nadis, converging to form the heart chakra.

  • The number 108 has held a multi-dimensional meaning throughout history

  • We have 108 beads in a mala.

  • Astronomical significance: viz. the diameter of the Sun multiplied by 108 equals the distance between Sun and Earth; the diameter of the Moon multiplied by 108 equals the distance between Earth and Moon; the diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth
