Time

Time is Anantha (Infinite). Divisions of time are called Kala Manam.
Paramanu is the smallest unit of time.
Two Paramanus make one Anu
3 Anus = 1 Thrasarenu
3 Thrasarenus = 1 Thrudi
100 Thrudis = 1 Talpara
30 Talparas = 1 Nimesha
3 Nimeshas = 1 Kshana
6 Kshanas = 1 Kashta (3.2 sec)
15 Kashtas = 1 Laghu (48 sec)
15 Laghus = 1 Khadi (12 minutes)
2 Khadis = 1 Muhoorta (24 minutes)
7.5 Khadis = 1 Yama or Prahara (3 hours)
4 Yamas = 1 Day time (12 hours)
8 Yamas = 1 Ahoratra (24 hours)
15 Ahoratras = 1 Paksha (15 days)
2 Pakshas = 1 Month
2 Months = 1 Ritu
6 Months = 1 Ayana (1/2 year)
2 Ayana = 1 Samvatsara (1 year)
1 Samvatsara = 1 Deva Dina
360 Devadinas = 1 Devavarsha
12,000 Devavarshas = 1 Chaturyuga
1000 Chaturyugas = 1 Kalpa
2 Kalpas = 1 Brahma Dina = 14 Manvantaras
1 Manvantaras = 71 Chaturyuga
2*30*12*120 Kalpas = 1 Brahma's life time
1200 Devavarshas (432,000 Manushyavarshas) = Kali Yuga
2400 Devavarshas (864,000 Manushyavarshs) = Dwapara Yuga
3600 Devavarshas (1,296,000 Manushyavarshas) = Treta Yuga
4800 Devavarshas (1,728,000 Manushyavarshas) = Krita Yuga
12,000 Devavarshas = 1 Mahayuga
1000 Mahayugas = 1 Kalpa (Day time of Brahma)
100 Brahma Varshas or Para = 36,000 Brahma Dinas = 1 Mahakalpa or Mahapralayam
