Trasareṇu (त्रसरेणु) refers to a “mobile speck” and represents a type of absolute measurement, as defined in the texts dealing with śilpa (arts and crafs), known as śilpaśāstras.—In the Indian value of measurement of length there are two different kinds of units, namely, the absolute and the relative. Of these, the first is based on the length of certain natural objects, while the second is obtained from the length of a particular part or limb of the person whose measurement is under consideration. They have been specified by R. N. Mishra, in his text in volume 1 of Kalātattvakośa.

8 paramāṇus (atomic size) make 1 rathāreṇu (speck of dust) or trasareṇu (mobile speck). 8 rathāreṇus make 1 romāgra (tip of a coarse hair) or valāgra (tip of a thin hair).
