The Great 108 charity event took place earlier in the year hosted by Yoga Manchester at the Ghita Bhavan Hindu Temple in Whalley Range. The event brought together 108 yogis to salute the sun 108 times to raise money for the Children in Need charity. 108 represent’s the ultimate reality of the universe as being simultaneously one (1) emptiness (0) and infinite (8). The salutations were followed by 10 minutes of om chanting (which took the energy through the roof!), Indian music, food and drink. All profits went to Children In Need.
