The Holy 108 – Earth Sun and Moon

108 is a sacred number in nearly every religion.  Hindu prayer mala’s are made of 108 beads.  There’s 108 names of God and 108 Chakras. Earth, Sun, and Moon are also linked to the Holy 108.

108 Chakras Earth Sun and Moon

About 108 Earths fit across the Sun. About 108 Suns fit in between Earth and Sun.  And , about 108 Moons fit between Earth and Moon. The number 360 is encoded in these distances when measured in miles.

It has been said that if one takes just 108 breaths in one day, they will reach enlightenment.

“In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away” -Shing Xiong

According to NASA, the Moon’s orbit around Earth is not a perfect circle and is more of an ellipse, so the Moon is not always 108 ‘moons’ away.  It is at this distance at some point between its mean orbit and its perigee, which means ‘when the Moon is closest to Earth’.  Earth’s orbit around the Sun is also an ellipse. On September 18-19 the distance of the Sun from Earth is 108 times that of the Sun’s diameter.

There are said to be 108 types of meditation. Some say there are 108 paths to God. Indian traditions have 108 dance forms. Every year in Japan a bell is chimed 108 times in Buddhist temples to finish the old year and welcome the new one. Hindu deities have 108 names.

Sri Yantra

The Sri Yantra “sacred instrument” is a diagram formed by nine interlocking triangles that surround and radiate out from the central (bindu) point. A yantra is a symbolic representation of aspects of divinity, the creative forces of the universe.

On Sri Yantra, the Marmas have 54 intersecting energy lines where three lines intersect. Each has feminine, or shakti, and masculine, or shiva, qualities. 54 X 2 = 108. Therefore there are 108 points that define the human body and the Sri Yantra or the Yantra of Creation. The same rule is observed in the Sanskrit language, with its 54 letters, both representing the two genders and they are also called Shiva and Shakti respectively; again, 54 X 2= 108. – HumanityHealing

Mathematically and Geometrically:
108 is a Harshad number (1+0+8=9) / 108 is divisible by 9
108 pattern in reduced fibonacci numbers
366 days in sidereal year; 3x6x6 = 108
1 squared plus 2 squared plus 3 squared equals 108

Throughout history 108 has always been a highly revered number, coveted by many religions for its practicality in nature and design.  Perhaps the most auspicious number of all, 108 also happens to be the number of stitches on a baseball.  Does MLB display the key quantity of this sacred canon of number in plain sight for all to see, or is it just another happy coincidence?

“The material universe that you perceive through your mind, speech, eyes, ears and other senses is an illusory creation that one imagines to be real due to the influence of maya (illusion). In fact, you should know that all of the objects of the material senses are temporary.” -Uddhava Gita-

Joe Dubs

I write about philosophy, geometry, health, politics and other stuff that interests me.


  1. I was wondering about these numbers connections 4, 9, 22, 72, 153, 1080

  2. christ created the core 12 plus an additional 108 disciples which eventually grew to 360 that spread the word throughout the world. The core of the fruit planted.

  3. All your calculations are based on “science”, which has as much validity as “religion” – indeed science IS a religion based on faith. The earth is a plane, an electromagnetic “realm”, as both Nikola Tesla and Vedic cosmology pictures it. That is my opinion, based on research. I think all the numbers you find that seem like an incredible “coincidence”, were planted by the Freemasons and other elite tricksters, liars, and ‘magicians’. Please watch this documentary Joe Dubs, and then tell my why the earth is a spinning ball traveling around the sun, while the entire solar system is traveling through the galaxy (yet constellations never change?)…? Please email me if you have an answer. I love your website, sacred geometry and philosophy, but the arithmetic coincidences of our solar system are impossible for me to believe, because in the first place – we have no way of precisely measuring those distances. We have no way of knowing what’s inside the earth, since 8 miles is the deepest hole humans have drilled. Science is all conjecture, or more likely – deliberate misinformation to hoodwink the steeple. Some information science furnishes us mere mortals is accurate, of course, otherwise people wouldn’t believe all their lies. Surely you know “science” can’t know the distances and sizes the way it pretends to, or the composition of our earth, which is NOT a spinning planet imho, after watching this documentary, and others.

    • David, I’ve seen the documentary, and have looked into FE and Concave Earth. There are too many problems with them in my opinion. I use the figured from NASA, and I’ve said before that they could be wrong. The Sun might not be 93 million miles away from us, who knows? Some of NASA’s measures are very curious and suspicious, like the diameter of the moon for instance. I’m sure NASA is lying to us, but I doubt that the earth is flat. And no, I’m not a freemason. Thanks.

  4. David. I agree with a lot of That. Have you heard of Gematria? It’s the geometry of language and very likely used by the powers that be, dating back to Greek Isopsephy and Jewish Kabbalah. Letters have value, A=1, B=2, C=3, etc and more.

    National Aeronautics and Space Administration=666
    NASA was founded in 58 on a date with numerology of 113.
    Secret Society=58
    113 is a code used for dishonesty and deception.

  5. 108 double stitches on a baseball, that’s 216 total…right?
    The Sears Tower in Chicago is 108 stories tall.
    The Chicago Cubs broke a 108 year drought by winning the WS in 2016 (216) against the Cleveland Indians.
    The Cleveland area code is 216.
    Cubs won in the 10th with 8 runs.
    The Cubs=108 in Kabbalah Gematria cipher

  6. 1² + 2² + 3² = 14, not 108

  7. 1^1+2^2+3^3=108

  8. A recent discovery confirms that number 216/108 is key to the orbital structures of all planets. See “Solar System’s Underlying Reality” at

  9. 108 is a geometric angle found in the later stages of the vesica piscis. The three stages of forming a vesica piscis actually looks like the number 108; 1. first draw a line (1), 2. rotate the line 360 degrees on one end (0), 3. then rotate the line 360 degrees on the other end (8). the intersection of the two circles is the vesica piscis.
    In Gematria (combining words with number value) the word “Sun” in basic ordinal cipher ammounts to 54 (half of 108) in fact the values of the four basic ciphers (54,9,27 & 18) all are divisors of 108 & together add up to 108.If you write out the values you see that they add up to 108 in all directions. The words “full Moon” (which is the sun directly reflected) ammounts to 108 (ordinal cipher) & 108 (reverse ordinal cipher) just like 108 reflected. – check it out yourself on

  10. The word “Sun” in gematria = 54 (Ordinal) which is half 108, in fact the values of the four basic ciphers (54,9, 27 & 8) are all divisors of 108 & together add up to 108. When written out the numbers add up to 108 each way.
    The words “Full Moon” = 108 (ordinal) & 108 (reverse ordinal) like the direct reflection of the Sun.

  11. The word “sun” is not start with a capital letter unless being used in an astronomical sense. “sun” (with lower case s) = 108 (Franc Baconis cipher)

  13. Thank you God for opening my eyes and I love you please help me be the man you’ve created me to be

  14. By all human observation and perspective, it’s flat! And the globe has never and will never be proven. period!

  15. Can somebody explain the 360 significance and the calculations of 360 x 3, 360 x 11 and 360 x 1200? Where do those numbers come in and what does the stop sign have to do with anything either? Working on a 108 presentation myself and want to know if those layers are relevant or not to this. Thanks for the breakdown!

  16. 5+8=13=4

  17. Love this synchronicity.
    One thing though. 1 squared + 2 squared + 3 squared = 14!
    Thank you for this article. Very interesting.

    • I think they meant one to the power of one plus 2 to the power of 2 ( or squared) plus 3 to the power of 3 (or cubed )…. which still is only 32.

      Lots of 9 numerology throughout though
      (108, 216,54,27… 4 3 2!!)

What do you think?
