Tibetan Medical Paintings
Illustrations to the Blue Beryl Treatise of Sangye Gyamtso
Edited by Yuri Parfionovitch, Gyurme Dorje and Fernand Meyer
A complete visual documentation - with 8,400 individual images and inscriptions on 77 thangkas - for the education and training of physicians in the many themes, subjects and properties of Tibetan medicine, Tibetan Medical Paintings presents a hitherto unknown set of paintings found in Buryiatia that illustrate a famous seventeenth century medical treatise. From explicit cartoon-like strips that delineate the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses to detailed anatomical charts, the paintings also present a vast range of substances - herbal, mineral and animal - used in the preparation of remedies, and span such fields as dream interpretation, embryology, sexuality, and the necessity of preventative medicine. Summaries of the Blue Beryl treatise are provided together with full translations of the Tibetan inscriptions on the paintings.
