Largest measurement of Time


The ancient Hindus had given the world the idea of the smallest and largest measuring units of Time. Astonishingly, the ancient Hindus used the following units of time:

Unit Equivalent Equivalent
Krati ------34,000th of a second
1 Truti---------- 300th of a second
2 Truti-----1 Luv
2 Luv ----1 Kshana
30 Kshana -----1 Vipal
60 Vipal--- 1 Pal
60 Pal ----Ghadi 24 minutes
2.5 Gadhi----- 1 Hora---- 1 Hour
24 Hora----- 1 Divas---- 1 Day
7 Divas---- 1 Saptaah----- 1 Week
4 Saptaah -----1 Maas -----1 Month
2 Maas----------- 1 Rutu (season)
6 Rutu =1 Varsh 1 Year
100 Varsh--- 1 Shataabda 1 Century
10 Shataabda ---1 Sahasraabda 10 Centuries or 1000 Years
432 Sahasraabda ----1 Yuga 4320 Centuries or 432000 Years
10 Yuga---- 1 Mahayuga ----43200 Centuries or 4320000 Years
1000 Mahayuga ----1 Kalpa ---------43200000 Centuries or 4.32 Billion Years






India gave the largest measurement of time as 8.64 billion years.

The Gregorian calendar on your desk simply adds on one day for every 4 years and is not in coherence with the movement of sun. But, Hindu calendar is in coherence as the short fall is corrected in the month itself by adding Adhikamasa as postulated by Maharshi Vishwamitra. Rig Veda 1.164.1, 2, 14 and 15 describe sun's motion, ritus and colours of spectrum. Kalyana varma, Varahamihira, Jaimini, Vidyanatha Deekshita, Kalidasa, Mantreshwara, Satyacharya, Venkatadri, Parashara, Ramadayalu and Garga have immensely contributed for the development of Hindu astrology.
