CHAPTER L.
17
The computation of these cycles rests on the mean cycles of
motion of the planets. As a caturyuga is, according to in&catur
Brahmagupta, the onethousandth part of a kalpa, we kaliyuga.
have only to divide these cycles by looo, and the
quotient is the number of the starcycles in one catur¬
yuga.
Likewise, if we divide the cycles of the table by
10,000, the quotient is the number of the starcycles in
a kaliyuga, for this is onetenth of a caturyuga. The
fractions which may occur in those quotients are raised
to wholes, to caturyugas or kaliyugas, by being multi¬
plied by a number equal to the denominator of the
fraction.
The following table represents the starcycles speci¬
ally in a caturyuga and kaliyuga, not those in a man¬
vantara. Although the manvantaras are nothing but
multiplications of whole caturyugas, still it is difficult
to reckon with them on account of the samdhi which
is attached both to the beginning and to the end of
them.
