 ``` 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 one-thousandth part of a kalpa, we kaliyuga. have only to divide these cycles by looo, and the quotient is the number of the star-cycles in one catur¬ yuga. Likewise, if we divide the cycles of the table by 10,000, the quotient is the number of the star-cycles in a kaliyuga, for this is one-tenth 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 star-cycles 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.
