True Type fonts needed - Nandimukhi, Lavanga

Could someone kindly supply me with the Nandimukhi and Lavanga fonts? And if there are others in the family, those too.

I haven't been able to find any information on them at all, but have seem them used recently in a few docs.

I wonder where you saw Lavanga, it's custom made for the three books I got published from SKCSM. Advaitadas should have Nandimukhi for you, I ported it from the old Sanskrit-Something encoding to Balaram compatible once upon a time for him and renamed it. I seem to have lost my copy, I haven't been using it since ages.

They're all in the same family as Balaram. There's a good selection of fonts that come with the Vedabase, for example Sabon and Goudy as Balaram-compatible.

Oooooh. I'm busted! blush.gif

Actually, Lavanga was in a doc that I got from you recently. (A mighty fine document it was too, but I shall say no more.)

And yes, I asked about Nandimukhi having come across it in Advaita's recent doc and something else recently.

I think I have pretty much everything else that is in common use for diacritics.

I have just discovered a program called Rupantar which is available free from the Gita Supersite ( If you download this, it will give you a large number of Devanagari fonts with different encodings. More important, it lets you convert from any one of them to any other. Extremely useful.

If anyone has Nandimukhi font, please send it to me or let me know where I can get it. I've recently received a devotee's translation of CC 2.8 and I cannot read it since it's in Nandhimukhi.
