The primary purpose of the Veda is the sacrifice. These sacrifices are executed according to a predetermined time. Therefore, Vedāṅga Jyotish of Lagahda exists and it provides information to determine the time for performance of the Vedic sacrifices. It categorically says that Vedas are for sacrifice (2.3).
vedā hi yajnñārthamabhipravṛttāḥ kālānupūrvā vihitāśca yajñāḥ
tasmādidaṃ kālavidhānaśāstraṁ yo jyotiṣa vedaṁ sa veda yajñān
Hence, the concept of timelessness does not exist in the Vedic scriptures.
However, in the mythology of Upanishads literature, one can find the concept of timelessness.
For instance, Maitrī Upanishad it is stated that the two forms of the Brahman are time and timelessness (6.15)
द्वे वाव ब्रह्मणो रुपे कालश्चाकालश्चाथ यः प्रागादित्यात्सोऽकालोऽकालोऽथ
It further also states that the time has form and formlessness (6.14)
काले चास्तं नियच्च्हन्ति कालो मूर्तिरमूर्तिमान्
