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 Upadeshas: "Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - False Knowledge" (June 15, 2014)
Bodhinatha comments on Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Verses 1.5 through 1.12. The restraint of the mental activities of correct knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fantasy, sleep and memory is achieved through practice and detachment. He focuses up the subject of erroneous knowledge and relates Gurudeva's discussion on how to resolve deep seated erroneous conception from Cognizantibility. Hatha yoga balances ida and pingala. Mindfulness and memory relate. Desire is life. Transmute our desire and change our life.
