Time

One of the five insentient non-material substances that make up the universe along with the sentient substance, called jīvastikaya.

The Jain concept of time is one of the most distinctive elements of Jain cosmological thought. It also demonstrates the repetitive and mathematical nature of Jain cosmology. Time is endless and only exists in certain parts of 'world space' in Jain believe.
