General definition (in Jainism)Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra
Palya (पल्य), or palyopama, is an inestimably long period of time. It is calculated as follows: a vessel, a yojana wide and deep, is filled with the hairs of a new-born lamb—hairs that have grown within seven days. If one hair is withdrawn every hundred years, the time required to empty the vessel is a palyopama.—Cf. commentary to Tattvārthādhigamasūtra 4. 15.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
