All over the world, there is a growing awareness and interest about the multidimensional and multifaceted culture including religion, philosophy, arts and traditional medicine of Tibet. Tibetan medicine which is even now practice in that country and her neighborhood has become the center of this interest. For the medical men and scientists, the language barrier and cryptic nature of description, specially with reference to therapeutic remedies have worked a a deterrent. These recipes are lying scattered in different texts and even physicians of Tibetan medicine are facing difficulties in the absence of their compilation and modification. Thus a vast wealth of knowledge accrued thorough centuries of experience is not being properly utilized for welfare of the suffering humanity. To overcome this difficulty, 205 popularly used and therapeutically effective recipes from the treasure of Tibetan medicine are compiled and elaborated with reference to their composition, parts of these ingredients and weights in which these are added along with the methods of preparation, indications and dosage. Of late commercialization of the manufacture of these recipes has created many problems and to overcome them, these recipes should be standardized and a pharmacopoeia is necessary to ensure quality control. Therefore in the introduction of this volume, the problems and methods of standardization and good manufacturing practices to be followed are elaborated. This work will be of immense help to physicians of Tibetan medicine, Ayurveda and modern medicine, and to scientists and scholars interested in Tibetology and Indology.
