Allowed medicine

Postby hanzze_ » Mon May 28, 2012 12:05 pm

I would like to ask the community about "Allowed medicine"

I saw that there are a lot of advices in regard of allowed medicines:

Do anybody has resources about detail preparations of "allowed" medicine?

Is there still a practice in regard of this by Bhikkhus today and in how far?

Are there professional doctors (ev. Bhikkhus) which are usually consulted by the community?

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Great, thank you. Would be great if there would be some Teachings doing not require to use money and to buy them.

For sure, there will be just customs and later teachings. Buddhas did not live in a time of pharmacy industry where every not-harmful way is nearly unknown. Therefore it would be from interest how they used to make medicine.

Of cause, there will be no such thing as a "original buddhist medicine", so I guess all resources used by traditions devoted to the Vinaya in the past (beside common modern medicine) are good helps.

The Bhesajjamañjūsā is Ayurveda, with some local additions...likewise Thai, Burmese, Khmer, Tibetan and Mongolian medicine (these last two being specifically Buddhist). Caraka, the 'father of Ayurvedic medicine' was Buddhist, as was Vagbhata. Of course the monastic prescriptions given by Lord Buddha himself are also Ayurveda. It is worth noting that Western scientific research into Ancient medical systems is about as valuable as asking an uncontacted aboriginal to comment on blueprints of the space shuttle.

Pure of anything doesn't ate like food in what country, that thing is medicine in that country, except medicines that allowed in pali.
