Tibetan Medicine: The Buddhist Way Of Healing
Tibetan medicine is a traditional form of healing that 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 in Tibet in the 7th-8th centuries, the Dalai Lamas, Tibet's spiritual and temporal rulers since the late 17th century, gave generous patronage to the study and propogation of medicine. Initially, monks were initiates into the art of healing, but later family lineages developed, till eventually it became a community service. Today, it is only practised by a handful of authorised amchis (doctors) and is in danger of losing its valuable patronage.
