佛说校量一切佛刹功德经

found this, most shocking and inconcievable about Saha World, Amitabha World and other even greater/lengthier World Systems.

此娑婆世界。满一大劫较量时分。是彼西方极乐世界。无量寿佛刹一昼夜。
2、佛子。彼极乐世界。一大劫较量时分。是阿儞弭沙世界。缚日啰(二合)娑誐啰钵啰摩哩那曩如来佛刹一昼夜。

The time span or one great kalpa of Saha world is just "one day" in Amitabha Pureland. and the entire time span of Amitabha Pureland World is just "one day" of another Buddha world system. and the time span of that Buddha world is yet just "one day" of another, on and on up to the Lotus Propitious World! inconcievable! how microscopic we are.

As soon as i began to submit my mind to the fact i cant conceive immeasurable and infinite, I learn Amitabhas Ultimate Bliss is just "one day" in another Buddhas world system, its incalculable.

yah, we already have that in the life span of heavenly realms.

Avatamsaka Sutra mentioned Ten Avatamsaka World (Lian Hua Zang莲华藏世界). Chapter 8 华藏世界品, Avatamsaka world have 20 levels. Shakya's Saha world is a trichiliocosm. Amitabha Pureland Sukhavati is also a trichiliocosm. Both are on the same level which is level 13th.
Amitabha Pureland Sukhavati is in the west of Saha world. Saha world is in the east of Sukhavati. So One Avatamsaka = 20 levels. If there're 10 Avatamsaka world, then the vastness is even more unimaginable!

III. FLOWER TREASURY WORLD

In the Flower Adornment Sutra the Buddha taught that the universe of world-systems is shaped like a great lotus flower and that world systems are arrayed within it in petal-like tiers. Our world -system, called the Saha World, is located on the thirteenth tier.

How should we interpret that, since it not corresponds to reality?

Flower Adornment is about the mind ground, the reality and the external world is the result of the mind-ground.

even science/Quantum Physic is getting there about reality, the universe is illusory and is the result of the mind.

Diamond Sutra
Chapter 32.
Buddha continued:

"Subhuti, if anyone gave to the Buddha an immeasurable quantity of the seven treasures sufficient to fill the whole universe; and if another person, whether a man or woman, in seeking to attain complete Enlightenment were to earnestly and faithfully observe and study even a single section of this Sutra and explain it to others, the accumulated blessing and merit of that latter person would be far greater."

"Subhuti, how can one explain this Sutra to others without holding in mind any arbitrary conception of forms or phenomena or spiritual truths? It can only be done, Subhuti, by keeping the mind in perfect tranquility and free from any attachment to appearances."

"So I say to you -
This is how to contemplate our conditioned existence in this fleeting world:"

"Like a tiny drop of dew, or a bubble floating in a stream;
Like a flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
Or a flickering lamp, an illusion, a phantom, or a dream."

"So is all conditioned existence to be seen."


Thus spoke Buddha.

Saha world time span. Interesting, as if we are at "teenage" year of Saha world(80 small kalpas) :-

Image
http://www.gc-dpkg.org.tw/new_page_123.htm

In the Buddhist scriptures, the term “Three Great Kalpas” refers to the Great Kalpas of the three periods of past, present and future.

In the previous world before our present earth world, the era was called “Kalpa of Adornment”. During twenty small kalpas in the Stage of Existence of the Adornment Kalpa, there were one thousand Buddhas in existence to maintain the virtuous adornment of their world, hence its unique naming. Today, the current era is called the “Kalpa of Virtue”. In the twenty small kalpas of the Stage of Existence of this era, one thousand Buddhas will also be born. The present Sakyamuni Buddha is the fourth Buddha. When it comes to the fifth Buddha, his name will be Maitreya Buddha. Today, he is commonly referred to as “Maitreya Buddha – the Buddha to be”. He is presently not a Buddha and hence the name.

The next aeon is called the “Kalpa of Stars”. In this Kalpa of Stars, within the twenty small kalpas of the Stage of Existence, there will also be one thousand Buddhas.

When the earth of the “Kalpa of Stars” era is destroyed, a new earth will be formed again. If the people of our present world wish to lead a long and blissful life, it is really possible to fulfil this wish. All that is needed is for the people to carry out good deeds, to cultivate and emulate the aspiration of the Bodhisattvas, to contribute to the beneficial deeds of Bodhisattvas, … and within the birth-death transmigration in the six realms of existence to continually maintain the human form lifetime after lifetime. When finally the “End of the World” comes, their “nature-soul” will be saved and they will be born in the Heaven of Light-sound where they will enjoy heavenly bliss.

The world may become damaged, but our “nature-soul” is non-ceasing. When a new earth is formed, those beings will come down from the Heaven of Light-sound, and due to the effect of the communal virtuous karma, together a new world is created that will be a brighter, more stable, peaceful and blissful Buddha World.

It is hoped that everyone will emulate the spirit and virtuous deeds of the Bodhisattvas lifetime after lifetime, and never to regress from the Bodhi path and enlightenment, but to continuously cultivate through the aeon of “Three Great Kalpas”. While there are a thousand Buddhas born in each Great Kalpa, if you could meet the Buddha in your lifetime and be guided and blessed; then it is definitely possible to become a Buddha in the next Great Kalpa after the “Kalpa of Stars” era. Therefore, Jen Chen Buddhism advocates the development of a blissful world on this earth. Such virtuous deeds shall bring about boundless blessings and longevity, and in the coming “kalpa” eras, everyone will become a Buddha.

The notion of "unconditioned" (asamskrta) means unconditioned by the constructions (samskara), ie. mental afflictions both cognitive and emotional, not a state which is absolutely unconditioned by anything at all.
