The expression t.r.m"  is obviously tri.m"  While the word bhuutale does fit the meter, the word mediniim, though metrically ok, is ungrammatical, and medinyaam is metrically not ok.

Dear Arlo,

>kalaud.r.m;sa vi.s.nusti.s.thati mediniim-bhuutalecaa
The text can be corrected to

kalau t.r.m" vi.s.nus ti.s.thati bhuutale (or medinyaam)|

'In Kali period stays on earth for thirty thousands years.'

mediniim-bhuutale caa does not fit the "sloka meter.

I cannot find the source of it.
