It has long been considered a 108 is a sacred number in Hinduism and yoga.
Traditionally, malas, or garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 beads (plus one for the "guru bead," around which the other 108 beads turn like the planets around the sun).
The term mala is derived from the Sanskrit word “Japamala", which is a string of beads used for prayer and meditation by Hindus and Buddhists (similar to the concept of a rosary in the Catholic faith).
What better way to meditate than with jade that has the meaning of purification, harmony, balance, gentleness and nourishment.
