The Space of Time: Buddhist Chronology and Kairology from kṣaṇas to kalpas
9:00am – 12:00pm (Pacific)
Saturday, February 10th, 2024
‘How long is a minute?’ Why do we use spatial terms like ‘long’ and ‘short’ to speak of Time? Long before Einstein and Hawkings, Buddhist thinkers such as Dōgen and Nāgārjuna had already noted the inextricable relationships between Space and Time. This presentation is an overview of these Buddhist conceptions of Time; from kṣaṇas, the ‘nano-seconds’ used to measure the arising and passing away of mental states, to kalpas, the longest measurement of time, which is immeasurable. In this way, Time will be explored in terms of chronology, the elapsing or passage of Time, and in terms kairology, specific instances or moments of Time.
