103rd Founding Anniversary of TMAI
103rd Founding Anniversary of TMAI
DHARAMSHALA, March 29: On the occasion of the 103rd founding anniversary of Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute (TMAI), Director Tashi Tsering talked about the challenge posed by incidents of mass duplication of institute’s medicine and unauthorized use of the brand.

It was disclosed that a certain group of businessmen have been acquiring a huge number of precious pills (Rinchen Rilbu), and then selling them at an exorbitant rates, especially in Tibet. The general public was cautioned not to fall prey to such deception.

Central Tibetan Administration’s (CTA) Health Kalon Choekyong Wangchuk presided as the chief guest with Dr. Gurdarshan Gupta, the chief medical officer of Kangra in Dharamshala as the special guest at the event attended by students, staff, officials, well-wishers and sponsors alike.

Dr. Gupta congratulated and awarded the graduating students with certificates and facilitated those staff who had completed 20 and 30 years of service respectively.

The health kalon, in his keynote speech, emphasized the importance of developing understanding, and exchange of knowledge with the modern allopathic system to comprehensively combat physical and psychological ailments.

Men-Tsee-Khang had in the previous year visited several places across India offering free checkup and medicine to local Indians as a gesture of gratitude for the host county.

Commenting on the relationship with the host country, Wangchuk advised that management and composition of medicine should be in accordance with the law of the land.

He said the debate on the presence of mercury in Tibetan medicine must be paid heed to and urged the graduating doctors to integrate Indian astrological system, and opined, “innovation and production of more medicine could act as a deterrence measure against duplication.”

Suggestion for integration with other system was echoed by the special guest, who said, “the latest thinking globally is not one particular system of medicine but a holistic approach to health hazard as such.”

The institute’s director urged that the Sowa Rigpa tradition should henceforth be referred more to as 'Tibetan medicine' since political circumstances have restricted the use of the terminology.
