Description

Protected by the world’s highest mountain ranges, Tibetan medicine has preserved an unbroken tradition since its introduction from India in the seventh century. The Venerable Rechung Rinpoche has here provided translations of the most important Tibetan medical texts. A major part of the volume is occupied by the biography of the Great Physician-Saint gYu-thog the Elder (C.E..786-911), who spread medical science throughout Tibet.

Poetic and imaginative features characteristic of Tibetan literature compose this narrative. The volume also includes translations from the second and Fourth books of the rGyud-bzhi, a work that is thought to have been derived from Sanskrit sources, but survives only in Tibetan and Mongolian, the Mongolian version being clearly a translation from the Tibetan one. Illustrations, including a series of intricate Tibetan anatomy diagrams, lend further appeal to the volume.
