Description Contents
Indo-Tibetan medicine enshrined in Rgvud 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 analysable 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 on the basis of Ayurvedic texts like Vagbhta's Astanga-hrdaya of which both the original Sanskrit 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-guhyopa-desa-tantra.

This present encyclopaedia will be published in 15 volumes. The present second volume contains twelve chapters from Bsad Pa'i rgyud (Skt.: Akhyata tantra).

The Tibetan text, after collation and edition from different recensions (editions) of this work, has been Romanised and below each of these technical terms (excluding case endings), Sanskrit equivalents (without case-endings) are provided. This follows the English translation of the text and notese there on after comparison with the extant Ayurvedic classics in Sanskrit. References of these Ayurvedic texts having the same and similar matter are also provided at the end of these paragraph. Each topic has been appropriately captioned (though such captions are not available in the Tibetan text), to facilitate further research work.
