Tibetan medicine is a traditional form of healing which 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 into 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 propagation of medicine. Initially, monks were the initiates into the art of healing, but later family lineages developed till eventually it became a community service. Today, it is practiced by a handful of authorised amchis (doctors) only and it is in danger of losing its valuable patrimony.-
