108-bead sandalwood mala
"In Buddhism, people are said to have 108 afflictions, or kleshas. There are six senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and consciousness) multiplied by three reactions (positive, negative, or indifference) making 18 ‘feelings.’ Each of these feelings can be either ‘attached to pleasure or detached from pleasure’ making 36 ‘passions’, each of which may be manifested in the past, present, or future.All the combinations of all these things makes a total of 108.” (Aaron Bell, reflecting on his experiences during the Shikoku pilgrimage)
