Uddhāra Palyopama

Published: 15.09.2016

A time-unit of innumerable years.

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

Vyāvahārika Uddhāra Palyopama: There is a cylindrical pit (or vessel) measuring one yojana 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 Samaya (the smallest time-unit) a single hair-tip is removed from it. The total period of time that elapses for emptying it completely is called Vyāvahārika Uddhāra Palyopama. It is of no use (purpose); only for the sake of propounding, it is propounded.

Sukṣma Uddhāra Palyopama: 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. Every Samaya (the smallest time-unit), a single piece is removed from the vessel. The total period of time that elapses for emptying it completely is called

"Sukṣma Uddhāra Palyopama".
