The number 108 represents many different symbolic meanings in Buddhism, including the 108 Termas or Kampira of Buddha-Dhamma. The 108 Termas are supposed relics and texts which Guru Padmasambhava is said to have taken to and hidden in Tibet and other places around South-East-Asia, to protect and preserve the Buddhist Faith, and the Buddha Dhamma itself.
It is usual to empower or pray with mantras using 108 repetitions as the powerful method of attaining merits.

The beads are very comfortable for use, and their shiny smooth surface allows you to slide the beads through your fingers, when chanting mantras with the greatest of ease, freducing any distractions which might arise from having to concentrate upon maintaining a grip on the beads.
