The differnce between the origin of the fixed zodiac and the
tropical zodiac. Defining the zodiac is the big problem and
people have tried to solve it. The sky around earth is divided
into 12 equal parts. Each part is a zodiac. The earth is tilted
to roughly 23 degrees, and circles around sun with the tilt
pointing towards or away from sun. Earth also rotates on its own
axis. The precession of the equinoxes refers to the precession
of Earth's axis of rotation with respect to inertial space. As
the earth precesses every year the imaginary point of begining
of zoadic also slides by say roughly 50 seconds a year. This is
measured with reference to some fix star. This precession of the
equinoxes gives a birth to ayanamsha. It is the difference
between the tropical zodiac and the nirayana zodiac. So people
in the past have tried to pinpoint exact location of fixed
zodiac in the past. As They haven't agreed on which it should be
we have various opinions. Most widely used are Lahiri (Default)
also known as chitrapaksha. According to this the fixed or
sidereal zodiac starts exactly 180 degrees from chitra (the
spica) star. That origin is called nirayana mesha arambha bindu.
