Encyclopaedia of Tibetan Medicine (Volume 7)

Vaidya Bhagwan Dash (Editor)

Vol.7: Man-nag rgyud (Upadesa Tantra) of Text of Instructions.

Indo-Tibetan medicine enshrined in Rgyud bzi which was originally composed in Sanskrit and still available in Tibetan is a veritable treasure of centuries of accumulated experience with rational fundamentals and scientifically analyzable therapeutic measures meant for the preservation and promotion of positive health, and prevention and cure of obstinate and otherwise incurable diseases. The present effort is to give the Sanskrit equivalents of this text on the basis of Ayurvedic texts like Vagbhata's Astanga-hrdaya of which both the original Sanskrit form and Tibetan translation are available. On the basis of this equivalent terminology, the text of Rgyud bzi is rendered into English in a narrative form. In future, this will also help in restoring the original Sanskrit text, which, as the opening sentence of this translated text shows, was, known as Amrta-hrdaya-astanga-guhyopadesa-tantra. This encyclopaedia will be published in 15 volumes
