This is the 108th post. 108 is a very special number with diverse explanations for its significance. There are 108 beads on the malas used by the faithful in both Hinduism and Buddhism. The number has vast significance, but that can wait for another day. Risky as it is, I want to draw parallels between a tragedy few of us studied in history and the recent events on Maui. I don’t really know where to start so bear with me a bit.
I have two more for you that involve the number 108 first the Catholic rosary has 108 beads but the best one of all is a professional baseball. It has 108 stitches, which is why I go to the church of baseball.
