108 (number) Its origin, significance and usage in Yoga and Pranayama

108 has its magic. If your surya nadi is active during this practice the time runs fast and if your chandra nadi is active the time runs slow. In both the cases holding breath for 108 seconds would be a challenge however if you are doing this while your sushumna nadi is active you stand greater chances of reaching this magical number of 108 and thus an opportunity to experience something completely new.
