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.
A temple helps you be a more peaceful person, live more deeply inside and into our soul nature. Harmony in the home leads to greater tolerance in the community. The emanation of darshan from the aadheenam creates an inner vibration, radiates out, uplifts those who are connected to the monastery. And, their karmas go more smoothly.
