In the Jain agamas the computation of very high numbers has been explained. The name for that is shirshaprahelika. In that context, today's numbers seem very small. If to one number, two hundred and forty zeroes are added then we arrive at that figure. This is an outstanding number. When science went into the subtle details of mathematics, then shirshaprahelika was proved and was valued as a great find.
