The number one (or 1) is not counted as a numerable number, because the numerable number is that integer which increases by squaring. But square of 1 is only 1. Hence, the numerable number (integer) starts with two (or 2). The Saṃkhyāta numbers (integers) are further classified into three categories: 1. Jaghanya Saṃkhyāta (J. S.) - Minimum numerable number. 2. Madhyama Saṃkhyāta (M. S.) - Middle...

Every hundred years, a single hair-tip is removed from the cylindrical pit. The total period of time that elapses for emptying it completely is called vyavahāra palyopama . This is just a formal palyopama because its value is under countable years. Removing a single hair-tip every 100 years, pit will get emptied in 4.13 x 10 44 x 100 years. Therefore vyavahāra palyopama = 4.13 x 10 44 x 100 years.

From samaya to Śīrṣaprahelikā are the units of countable time. In reality, countable numbers go beyond Śīrṣaprahelikā, but as they transcend the limit of empirical mathematics, Śīrṣaprahelikā is considered to be the highest countable time-unit. The units of uncountable time are defined by similies. They are broadly classified into two : (1) Palyopama (pit-measured time-unit) (2) Sāgaropama...
