Jai 108 Presents
The name of our company is based around the number 108, which has long been a significant number for us. It is sacred to both Hindu's and Buddhists'. It is the number of beads on the mala that the Dalai Lama wears. And we feel it is way for us to incorporate a bit of the spiritual, with the material and practical aspect of doing business. The word "Jai" translates to 'victory' or 'triumph' from the ancient Sanskrit language. ‘Presents’ is a play on the word present. We consider the minerals from the Earth we use as gifts. And as such, it is a constant reminder that there is a spark of the divine present everywhere, and we hope that this spark kindles the flame of our creativity.
