Whether in Hinduism, Buddhism or Jainism, this sacred number is very common.
etc... but still?
The 1 represents the presence, the self. The 0 is absence. Understand here absence of fluctuations of thought (meditation). The 8 is infinity, the loop of eternity.
Thus, 108, the sacred number, is a symbol of union. The union of the self, of the transparency of the mind and of the process of transformation towards the infinite. 108 represents the 8th pillar of Patañjali's Yoga Sūtra, Samãdhi: to become one with the absolute.
You now know the meaning of the number 108! You will see that it will resonate differently with you from now on.
