Pythagoras, the famous Greek philosopher is regarded as the Father of Numerology science. He strongly believed that our cosmic zone is made up of numbers and it is extremely important for all the people to understand the significance of each number. He further classified the numbers on the basis of their nature like masculine or feminine, introvert or extrovert, ugly or beautiful and so on. He also preached the theory that the numbers endow karmic debts i.e. the bad deeds of our previous birth to the present lives. This theory was further elaborated by another famous philosopher, Plato.
Pythagoras assigned a particular number (from 1 to 9) in respect to each alphabet and assumed a relationship with respect to the latter. In this way, he analyzed that everything was progressing in predictable cycles. Apart from number 1-9 digits, he also referred to 11 and 22 which were known as Master Numbers. The master numbers represent the deeds of past life and hence the success or failure of an individual born under the master number depends upon their karma (past deeds).
According to Pythagoras, the entire fate of an individual depends on the numbers in his birth date and name. The chart is listed below which provides an insight to Pythagoras Numerology.
The following is the list of important numbers in the life of a person according to Pythagoras Numerology system:

Thus, 3 represent creativeness, artistic and sociability which Mother Teresa displayed throughout her life.
Life Path Number- This represents the pros and cons in a person along with his latent talents and ability to achieve various goals within his domain. It is calculated by adding the digits of birth date.
