WORLD ACCORDING TO RGYUD BZHI: THE BASIC CONCEPTS OF TIBETAN MEDICINE

This paper presents principles of traditional Tibetan medicine contained in rGyud bzhi, a renowned medical treatise of the 12th century. These principles refer to the structure and functions of human body, situations conducive to diseases, and methods of treatment.
