The number 108 is where my research into the meaning of sacred numbers started. 108 x 260 = 28080 These five digits represent the core fractal of the Arcturian Shield Program.
The number 108 is as profound as the Sacred Number 260, the number of the Sacred Count or Tzolkin of the indigenous Maya and Olmecs of Mesoamerica.
In Thailand there is a Massive Reclining Golden Buddha. The statue resides in the Grand Palace which has a huge compound surrounded by high white walls. The compound is about 260 hectares. On each of the Buddha's feet are 108 sacred symbols in laid with mother of pearl.
The number 108 is seen as sacred in many different cultures.
The chakras are the intersections of all the energy lines of the subtle bodies. There are a total of 108 energy lines converging to form the heart chakra. One of them, sushumna leads to the crown chakra, and is said to be the path to Self-realization.
The Temple of Re-Harakhte (The Sun Temple of Ramesses II)
The main temple was dedicated to Ramesses II and to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Harakhte, Amun-Re, and to Ramesses II himself. Of the seven temples he built, Abu Simbel is considered to be the most impressive. The facade of the main temple is 108 feet high and 125 feet wide with four colossal seated statues about 65 feet high wearing the double crown and having the cartouches of Ramesses II.
The number 108 is highly auspicious in the Buddhist religion.
All major schools of Buddhism have long recognized the existence of 108 Defilements, which are so named because these faults cause both the body and mind to be afflicted and to suffer. Upon the exhaustion or elimination of the 108 Defilements through shugyo (the austere practice of bodymind transcendence), one enters a state of enlightenment. The allegory of 108 steps leading up to Buddhist temples now become clear. As each of the steps are climbed a defilement is symbolically eliminated, the seeker's true nature becomes less and less obscured and afflicted as they ascend the way. By the time the shrine is reached, the seeker is symbolically ready for enlightenment, the state of non-suffering.
Astrological investigations of 108
"The key to full explanation of the "Sons of God" List is the total of 108 sars. We see the significance of 108 1080 to astronomy in the comparable Hebrew astronomical calendar. Since 360 x 3 = 1080 allows finer division, the Hebrews divided an "hour", i.e. one full turn of a 360 degree astronomical "clock", into 1080 subdivisions called HALAQIM. The usage of the number 1080 may also reflect ancient knowledge that precession moves 1° in 72 years. In 1080 years precession is 15°, one half-month of the precessional "great year". http://www.lexiline.com/lexiline/lexi31.htm
The ancient cultures divided the sky into 36 "night stations" of stars. These could be divided into a total of 108 (36 x 3) segments or SARS (Latvian ZAR = "branch") for better detail. I simply calibrated the data by potentiating 108 by 10 to get 1080 (= 360 x 3) and then dividing by 3. This was applied to the individual "reigns" of the kings. To get the degrees of arc of the circle. For example, we potentiate 20 sars x 10 = 200. Then we divide by 3, which gives 66.66 degrees (of 360 degrees). When we do this with all of the lengths of reign, the total is 360°" http://www.lexiline.com/lexiline/lexi31.htm
