Paths to God: Some suggest that there are 108 paths to God.

 

Hinduism: 108 is said to refer to the number of Hindu deities. Some say that each of the deities has 108 names.

 

Islam: The number 108 is used in Islam to refer to God.

Sikh: The Sikh tradition has a mala of 108 knots tied in a string of wool, rather than beads.

 

Buddhism: Some Buddhists carve 108 small Buddhas on a walnut for good luck. Some ring a bell 108 times to celebrate a new year. There are said to be 108 virtues to cultivate and 108 defilements to avoid.

 

9 times 12: Both of these numbers have been said to have spiritual significance in many traditions. 9 times 12 is 108. Also, 1 plus 8 equals 9. That 9 times 12 equals 108.

 

Powers of 1, 2, and 3 in math: 1 to 1st power=1; power=4 (2x2); power=27 (3x3x3). 1x4x27=108
