Tibetan-English Dictionary of Tibetan Medicine and Astrology (Revised and Enlarged Edition)
Tibetan-English Dictionary of Tibetan Medicine and Astrology (Revised and Enlarged Edition)
Description
Foreword

This comprehensive Tibetan-English Dictionary of Tibetan Medicine and Astrology compiled by Dr. Tsering Thakchoe Drungtso and Mrs. Tsering Dolma Drungtso is much welcomed.

They worked through numerous texts and references of Tibetan medicine and astrology, and were able to bring out this dictionary with much enthusiasm and in the face of hardship. It is the basis of development of one’s mind and knowledge on Tibetan medicine and astrology. This book provides an authentic source for those who wish to learn and know more about the science and philosophy of Tibetan medicine and astrology.

Therefore, I am sure that it can be of immense benefit to anyone interested in developing his or her knowledge of Tibetan medicine and astrology.

Dr. Tenzin Choedrak
(Senior Personal Physician to His Holiness the Dalai Lama)

Introduction

The first edition of this dictionary was well received and went out of print since two years. Although there has been high demand for its reprint, Drungtso publication did not do so to improve and revise it as the first edition was brought out with much hardship due to lack of resources and personal experience.

Our aim inn compiling this dictionary was to bridge the gab between scholars, students and researchers of English and Tibetan speaking and to fulfil the expectations of those who requested it. It was also to benefit many of our non-English speaking doctors and astrologers, so that their services will reach beyond Tibetan community.

Despite our limited knowledge and experience, we have taken every care in revising and editing this edition. We have featured here the transliteration, phonetics, common English names, Sanskrit or Hindi names and botanical terms of the medicinal plants and other contents and their tastes, potency; uses as well as compounding, their actions and nature. The entry of words is done according to Tibetan alphabetical order; and transliteration are italicized which is followed by phonetic and then meaning.

Despite our best efforts to be comprehensive and accurate, it is likely that there are still errors and omissions. We hope that the users will feel free to us, with any kinds of suggestions, so that we could improve the future editions.

About the Authors

Born in 1969 in Dhinghri near the Mount Everest, Tsering Thakchoe began his education at the tender age of eight. He studied Tibetan literature from Ngawang Chungney, a former Sera monk and from his father. After the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959, thousands o Tibetans had to flee Tibet in the footsteps of their leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Thakchoe, too escaped to India leaving behind his parents to achieve his goals in life.

Dr. Tsering Thakchoe Drungtso is currently a Professor at the Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, the head quarter of Tibetan-government-in-exile. He has taught students from U.S.A. Germany, France, Spain, Holland, Japan, Austria, Australia, Poland, Canada, Israel, England and Switzerland.

Dr. Drungtso is arguably the first-ever Tibetan doctor to have successfully blended traditional and modern techniques to make a Tibetan flower essence, which had been proven highly effective after scientific tests in Australia. Dr. Drungtso has traveled widely in Europe, giving consultations, lectures on Tibetan medicine, teaching at spiritual centers and exchanging ideas with foreign doctors, scholars and researchers on Tibetan Medicine. Dr. Drungtso has lectured extensively throughout the Europe and has written many articles on Tibetan medicine. He is the author of Tibetan Medicine-The Healing Science of Tibet and Tibetan Book of Massage-Comforting mind and body.

Tsering Dolma Drungtso was born in 1974, Mundgod (Karnataka State) and grew up in India. She is a Tibetan astrologer and known teacher of Tibetan astrology in the West. She is, perhaps, the first Tibetan astrologer who conducts teachings on Tibetan astrology worldwide via Internet.

She has students from Japan, Australia, England, Denmark, America, Poland, Germany and France.

She is the author of Tibetan Elemental Astrology and travels to Europe and Asia for consultation and teaching Tibetan astrology.

Dolma Drungtso is committed to the preservation and advancement of Tibetan astrological science and application of Buddhism in professional life.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
