Tibetan Medical Seminar

On Birth, Life, and Death

by Various Authors

Book - 17.00€


available also: eBook - 13.60€

The ancient and profound knowledge of Tibetan medicine is slowly making headway in the West and entering the mainstream culture of health and well-being. This development is thanks to the continuous efforts of many scholars and dedicated individuals and institutions who tirelessly work to keep alive not only the medical tradition but also all other aspects of Tibetan civilization with its priceless cultural heritage. This book contains the proceedings of the Third Tibetan Cultural Event - Tibetan Medical Seminar, held in Tenerife  (Spain) in 2013. Participants included distinguished Tibetan doctors residing and working both in Tibet and the West.
