In essence, many ancient mantras serve as vehicles for the mind to cross over the material world and into enlightenment. Though this notion may seem lofty or far-fetched to the beginner yogi, the basic principle of mantra recitation is this: to use sound to cut through mental clutter, facilitate meditation practice, and create a deeper state of awareness. All of our words spoken, or said silently in our minds, create the reality we live in. Many of the sacred mantras chanted in yoga studios today are thousands of years old, dating back to Vedic times, and were created by sages and practitioners of early Hinduism and Buddhism.

Sanskrit Text is Devanagari font specially targeting the typesetting of Sanskrit texts in a traditional style. The design of Sanskrit Text is based on Monotype Devanagari, a type initially manufactured for hot metal typesetting technologies back in s, but has been thoroughly revised and expanded by John Hudson and Fiona Ross Tiro Typeworks. Letter shapes have been made more stylistically and proportionally consistent, and the glyph set supports more than consonant conjunct sequences attested in Sanskrit texts. The glyph set specification was prepared with advice from Anshuman Pandey, and is based on both existing catalogues as well as new analysis of specific Vedic and literary texts. Sanskrit Text is one of the first fonts to incorporate support for the Unicode encoding of Vedic symbols and marks.
