Verse 1.27.32

कल्पाभिधानक्षणजीविनो हि कल्पौघसंख्याकलने विरिञ्चयाः ।
अतः कलाशालिनि कालजाले लघुत्वदीर्घत्वधियोऽप्यसत्याः ॥ ३२ ॥

kalpābhidhānakṣaṇajīvino hi kalpaughasaṃkhyākalane viriñcayāḥ |
ataḥ kalāśālini kālajāle laghutvadīrghatvadhiyo'pyasatyāḥ || 32 ||

Those living a Kalpa age are reckoned as short-lived, compared with those living for many Kalpas, and they again are so in respect to Brahma. Hence the parts of time being all finite, the ideas of their length or shortness are altogether false.
