Pali in Brahmi Script

Postby vinodh » Sat Jan 09, 2010 6:40 pm

Hey Guys,

I have just got a good working font for Asokan Brahmi from Xenotypetech here.

http://www.xenotypetech.com/osxBrahmi.html

If you guys need any Pali Text in Brahmi, post them here.

Do note that, the font doesn't support all conjuncts in the Brahmi script. It support only very few conjuncts. If the text had no conjuncts it would be better.

yo dharmaṁ paśyati, sa buddhaṁ paśyati
One who sees the Dharma, sees the Buddha

na pudgalo na ca skandhā buddho jñānamanāsravam
sadāśāntiṁ vibhāvitvā gacchāmi śaraṇaṁ hyaham

Neither a person nor the aggregates, the Buddha, is knowledge free from [evil] outflows
Clearly perceiving [him] to be eternally serene, I go for refuge [in him]

It seems that the Prakrit of Asokan Inscription writes that as dhaMma - with an anusvAra rather than doubling the consonant.

The Xenotype font doesn't support the double consonant rendering sorry.

Okay, cool it looks like the original drawing I did was not too far off then for the Brahmi script.
