The asankhyeya (also called asaṃkhyeya[1]) is a number described in Buddhist texts that is equal to \(10^{140}\), or 1 followed by 140 zeroes.[2] It is pronounced Asougi in Japanese where it is equal to \(10^{56}\), and means "innumerable".

The Avatamsaka Sutra [1] gives an alternate description of Asankhyeya as \(10^{7\times2^{103}}\), defining a series of numbers that are squares of each other starting with one koti equalling \(10^7\), one koti kotis making an ayuta (\(10^{14}\)), one ayuta ayutas making a nayuta (\(10^{28}\)), and so on, with Asankhyeya being the 104th number in this chain.
