## Thank you WordPress!

I like to thank all the followers, visitors, and finally the WordPress from bottom of my heart! WordPress has been a great platform to learn and share the knowledge with all my friends in the search of Absolute Truth. I was able to explore and express my Self in the best way as never before. It would my great pleasure even if this blog helps to light (0.01%) Self Awareness in you. Today we reached the spiritual milestone of 108 followers. It’s the perfect moment to discuss about the importance of very special number “108”.

The number 108 is considered sacred in many religions, traditions, and connected yoga and dharma based practices. The individual numbers 1, 0, and 8 represent one thing, nothing, and everything (infinity). 108 represents the ultimate reality of the universe as being (seemingly paradoxically) simultaneously One, Emptiness, and Infinite.

Mathematics

The ancient Indians were excellent mathematicians and 108 may be the product of a precise mathematical operation. 1 to 1st power=1; 2 to 2nd power=4 (2×2); 3 to 3rd power=27 (3x3x3). 1X4x27=108. In geometric terms it is a natural division of circle (108=36+72=9 X 12). 108 is a Harshad number, which is an integer divisible by the sum of its digits (Harshad is from Sanskrit, and means “great joy”).
