At home at the Aadheenam, today we enjoyed a visit from David Lemon, Senior Manager of Type Development at Adobe Systems, Inc., in San Jose, California. Adobe, the inventor of the Postscript language that originally allowed computers to send typographical and graphical information to printers and which remains important today as the language behind many computer fonts and the basis of their PDF standard, is one of the world’s largest and most respected type foundries. The monastery has been using Adobe typefaces in its publications for decades. An important contact for the monastery’s publications group, David engaged with us in worthwhile discussion today about many things typographical, opening doors for giving feedback and input that may help guide certain typefaces the company is working on.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "The Summit of All Religions; Regular Meditation" (February 13, 2015)
Religion has a oneness in mysticism but has major differences in terms of beliefs and practices. Unrelenting effort, working on the outside with our faults and weaknesses, allows us to manifest actual experience as a mystic, intensify our purification. We are perfect on the inside. Condition the mind by practicing meditation daily; hold a meditative vibration, samskara of restraint.
