Significance of 108 beads in a japamala

Sun's diameter = 13,80,000 km

Distance between Sun and earth = 14,96,00,000 km

14,96,00,000 divided by 13,80,000 equals 108.4058 rounded off to 108.

सूर्य आत्मा जगतः -  Sun is the atma of the universe.

The mystical number 108 used in spiritual practice is a clear indication of how our sages knew this unique relationship between Sun and earth - the worldly existence and the highest spiritual enlightenment.
