In ancient Indian cosmology a kalpa is an extremely long period of time. According to The Treatise on the Great perfection of Wisdom, a kalpa is longer than the time required to wear away a cube of rock forty ri (one ri being about 450 meters) on each side, by brushing it with a piece of cloth once every hundred years.
