International Yoga Day
In yoga, the number 108 refers to spiritual completion. It is why Japa Malas are composed of 108 beads, why pranayama is often completed in cycles of 108, and why Surya Namaskar is often performed in 108 rounds. By practising chanting, breathwork, or asana in rounds of this sacred number, the ancient yogis believed we could align ourselves with the rhythm of the creation, and ultimately bring an end to our cycle of reincarnation.108 seems to be a mysterious number that connects the ancient world to the modern world and also connects the physical realm to the metaphysical realm. The number is sacred in mathematics, geometry, astrology, numerology and in many world religions and spiritual traditions.
