The terms “AD” and “BS” refer to different calendar systems that are used to mark the passage of time.
AD stands for “Anno Domini,” which is Latin for “in the year of our Lord.” This calendar system is based on the estimated birth year of Jesus Christ and is used in much of the world. In this system, the year 2022 is written as “AD 2022.”
BS stands for “Bikram Sambat,” which is the official calendar of Nepal. It is a lunar calendar that is based on the traditional Hindu lunar calendar, and it is used by many people in Nepal and the surrounding region. The year 2021 in the BS calendar is written as “BS 2078.”
There is a difference of approximately 56 years and 8.5 months between the AD and BS calendars, with the Nepali date, that is BS calendar being ahead of the AD calendar. This means that if the current year is AD 2021, the corresponding year in the BS calendar would be BS 2078.
If you count days, then the difference between AD to BS is 56 years, 08 months, and 17 days, which can make conversion complicated.
