Like if we
at a certain time , the bikram sanvat date was such and such then we can
find dates before and after it upto certain dates. But , that kind of way
won't be useful if I want to find a date in real past or future, say
Birth of Christ in Bikram samvat.
As, it was told, that it has 60 years cycles. I do not find the difficulty
it does not follow what westerners call logic - within the sixty years, wise
men look at the stars and moon and decide what starts when. This was about 20
years ago, so I am hazy about the details, but a concrete example is the month
of Ramazan in the muslim calendar - that ends when a certain designated person
in each part of the world sights the new moon - so at the most a computer
program can predict the date with a margin of error of two days. Multiply that
error by sighting the position of stars etc - better to program a killy.
