Jainism
buddha-nature

A traditional Buddhist term for a very, very long period of time, like an eon. Defined in various ways, but one vivid description is to imagine how long it would take to wear away a solid rock 1 cubic mile in size if you came by and brushed the rock with a silk scarf once every 100 years, and a kalpa is longer than that.
