This number also carries many levels of meaning, but primarily the beads are a reminder to the spiritual aspirant that our time in a humanoid body is short: the normal cycle of manifestations in a human body is limited to 108; those who fail to acheive the Self-realization of the Being within their 108 lives are recycled by nature through the process of devolution and the Second Death. See also Intellectual Animal.
