A time-unit of innumerable years.

It is of two kinds - 1. Vyāvahārika (empirical), 2. Sukṣma (subtle).

Vyāvahārika Adhvā Palyopama - There is a cylindrical pit (or vessel) measuring one Yojana (1Yojana=7.88 mile) each in length, breadth and height, and with a circumference of slightly more than three Yojanas. It is made cram-full with the billions of hair-tips of the children of the age of one day upto seven days. Every hundred years, a single hair is removed from it. The total period of time that elapses for emptying it completely is called Vyāvahārika Adhvā Palyopama. It is of no use (purpose); only for the sake of propounding, it is propounded.

The definition of "Sukṣma Adhvā Palyopama" is as follows: each hair tip (referred to in the above definition) is cut into innumerable pieces and the cylindrical vessel of the size mentioned above is made cram-full with these hair-pieces After every hundred years, a single piece is removed from the vessel. The total period of time that elapses for emptying it completely is called

"Sukṣma Adhvā Palyopama".
