17. FIXED INITIAL POINT OF THE SIDEREAL SPHERE
From the kaliyuga epoch to mean noon at Greenwich 1 January 2000, Julian date 2451545.0, there are

There are 16.8 precessional years in a kaliyuga (see Chapter 13). From the beginning of the kalpa to the kaliyuga epoch there are At the kaliyuga epoch the tropical year initial point is 0.6(360) = 216 of precession from the fixed initial point. Therefore, on 1 January 2000 the tropical year initial point will have precessed from the fixed initial point of the sidereal sphere used in the construction of Hindu cosmological time cycles, considered to be, as above, the sidereal position of the mean Sun at the mean summer solstice of the year 144000 sidereal years before the kaliyuga epoch. Since 90 separate the mean vernal equinox from the mean summer solstice, the fixed initial point will be at
