Books and Study Materials on Tibetan Medicine

Postby Josef » Wed May 04, 2011 5:06 pm

Thought a thread to post this kind of thing would be useful for those interested.

Here are a couple of books that I found very interesting.

Some articles within certain issues of Bulletin of Tibetology (filename convention: bot_XXXX_0*_full where XXXX is year eg: 2005):

Dzogchen masters I know say: 1)Buddhist religion essence is Dzogchen 2)Religions are positive by intent/fruit 3)Any method's OK unless: breaking Dzogchen vows, mixed as syncretic (Milanese Soup) 4)Don't join mandalas of opponents of Dalai Lama/Padmasambhava: False Deity inventors by encouraging victims 5)Don't debate Ati with others 6)Don't discuss Ati practices online 7) A master told his old disciple: no one's to discuss his teaching with some others on a former forum nor mention him. Publicity's OK, questions are asked from masters/set teachers in person/email/non-public forums~Best wishes

Tibetan Buddhist Medicine and Psychiatry by Terry Clifford.

Early in the book is a very interesting discussion of how Vajrayana Buddhism greatly influenced and contributed to the sophistication of ayurveda in India.

It is the opposite way actually. Ayruveda contributed to the development of annutarayoga tantra completion stage practices.

I can definitely see that.
The book is a bit old and Cliffords thesis reads as though tantra influenced medicine but it actually makes more sense (at least early on) that the well established medical system would be the primary influencer.
