Description About the author Contents
 
Written by one of the greatest authorities on Tibetan medicine, A Mirror of Beryl presents an in-depth overview of the Tibetan medical system and its history. Covered are the Tibetan understanding of human physiology and anatomy, the various methods of diagnosis, such as pulse reading and urinalysis, and the typologies of disease and their corresponding remedies, including surgical treatments. Unlike Gyatso's other well-known medical work, The Blue Beryl, which is a detailed commentary on The Four Tantras (a collection of traditional Tibetan medical scripture), this work stands alone. Packed with information, it provides fascinating insight into one of the world's most valuable and holistic systems of medicine.
