This book, prepared by Dr.Tsering Dekhang of the Tibetan Medical and Astrological institute, contains through descriptions of about 200 medicinal plants employed in the Tibetan medical system. It includes herbs, shrubs and trees that thrive primarily in the Himalayan region, as well as other parts of the world. I have no doubt that this book will be valuable resource for students, researchers, scholars and medical professionals interested in medicinal plants and their use in treating disease. Given the interdependence of the world in which we live, sharing knowledge is an important way of contributing to the welfare of human beings in general. The author is a qualified practitioner of Tibetan medicine, which is one of the greatest legacies of Tibetan Buddhist civilization. It is a system that can contribute substantially to maintaining healthy mind and a healthy body, viewing health holistically as a question of balance. This natural balance can be disturbed by a variety of circumstances such as diet, lifestyle, as well as seasonal and mental conditions, which gives rise to different kinds of disorders. As an integrated system of health care Tibetan medicine has served the Tibetan people well for many centuries and I believe can still provide much benefit to humanity at large. This book will provide readers with some insight into an important aspect of the tradition, the use of medicinal plants.
