There is a mention in the Jain Agamas of the highest degree of reckoning. It is called -'Shirshaprahelika'. Today's numeration falls far short of it. The Jain figure is obtained by placing 240 ciphers over after a number. It constitutes the highest numeral. When science began to talk of sophisticated mathematics, the truth of 'Shirshaprahelika' became self-apparent, and it was considered to be an important discovery.
