How Long is a Kappa / Kalpa (Aeon)? 1

If a single mustard is removed once every 100 years, from a cube made up of mustard seeds that is 16 miles (1 yoduna) in length, width and height, the mustards seeds will come to an end before the kappa (kalpa) (aeon) comes to an end.

Pali: Kappa (Sanskrit: Kalpa)

1 yoduna = 16 miles

A mustard seed is roughly 1 millimetre in width

May all be happy and well!
