Jai Srimannarayana!
Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha!

Dearest Family,
Please excuse adiyen for asking such a lowly question. The number 108 has 
great significance in our way of life. When an archana is chanted, 
Bhagavan's or Mother's names total 108. There are 108 principal Upanishads. 
There are 108 beads on the mala. Please enlighten adiyen to the significance 
of such a number. Peace and blessings be upon you all.

In love and respect,
Adiyen Keshava Ramanuja Dasa
