Tibetan Medicine The Buddhist Way of Healing
Tibetan Medicine The Buddhist Way of Healing
Description
From the Jacket

Tibetan medicine is a traditional form of healing which basically employs natural materials (herbs, minerals, precious stones, metals, and so on) for compounding medicines. It uses a holistic approach, tackling the symptoms of disease at both the physical and emotional levels. Buddhist healing is intimately linked with Buddhist philosophy. From its initial introduction into Tibet in the 7th-8th centruies, the Dalai Lamas, Tibet's spiritual and temporal rulers since the late 17th century, gave genrous patronage to the study and propogation of medicine. Initially, monks were the initiates into the art of healing, but later family lineages developed till eventually it became a community service. Today, it is practised by a handful of authorised amcbis (doctors) only and it is in danger of losing its valuable patrimony. Teswang Dolkar Khangkar, Doctor of Tibetan Medicine, was born in Kyirong (Happey Valley) western Tibet in 1959. She studied at the Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute (Men-Tsee Khang) in Dharamsala from 1972 to 1978. She took her apprenticeship under her late and renowned mother Dr. Lobsang Dolma Khangkar (Ama Lobsang), and today runs a clinic in Delhi and a consultancy clinic in Bombay. She travels extensively all over the world giving lectures on Tibetan medicine and also conducts annual field research in herb-picking to the higher reaches of the Himalayas.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
