Similiarly, I am wondering why in the 5 Tibetan rites each pose is done exactly 21 times. I have researched this and can not figure out the significance of the number 21.
Any thoughts?


108 = 2^2 * 3^3 (or two-square times 3-cube). nice number, beside other things.


1 = The One or you, 0 represent the perfect circle and or courser 8 is infinity!

to whom it may concern: I have been disabled for over 30 years of my life and I am 87% percent disabled with a bad back and I have two disc of l-4 and l-5 disc removed out of my lower back and I am on very heavy medications of vicodin 500 mg in where I have to take 3 pills per day for my back pain everyday and night at my old age of 61 years old. anyway I have no money and I was hoping you might be able to mail me one mala prayer beads of 108 prayer beads that would be very helpful for my night buddha meditations on my bed at nights. I would be very thankful to you if you are able to help me? thanking you for al your holy time. jim cameron, 22122 nomwaket - road, apple valley, california. 92308]
