Significance of the number 108 in Spirituality and Yoga

108 is a very important number.  Hindus do everything as a count of 108.  The beads, the mantras, the yantras..

Sadhguru explains the importance of 108 and why it is so significant to a Spiritual seeker and central to Yoga.

Hindu deities have 108 names, and there were 108 Gopis as well.

Btw, in mathematics, The equation 2sinleft(frac{108^circ}{2}right) = phi  results in the golden ratio.
