kalpa, kal′pa, n. a day of Brahma, a period of 4320 million years.
He creates anew when he wakes on the morning of the next kalpa.
His birth is supernatural and had he willed it he could have lived until the end of the present kalpa.
Thus, Brahmanic cosmogony usually deals with a period of time called kalpa.
These seas are the three kalpas; we now live in the white kalpa.
The Gṛihya of Āpastamba forms two books (26–27) of his kalpa Sūtra.
And dressed with care, Ravana looked like the kalpa tree in Indra's garden.
It forms two (26–27) of the twenty-nine chapters of the kalpa Sūtra belonging to the school of Hiraṇyakeçin.
Its position, however, within the kalpa Sūtra of its school is not so fixed as in the two previous cases.
The thirtieth and last praçna of the great kalpa Sūtra of Āpastamba is a treatise of this class.
