FACTS & HISTORY: Tibetan medicine has a long history. There was a native tradition of medicine in Tibet. With the formation of the Tibetan empire in the 7th century of the modern era, the emperors invited doctors from India and China, as well as from the Persian and Roman areas of Central Asia. Later, toward the end of the 8th century, they invited more doctors from these regions. Also at that time, the Buddha's teachings on medicine were brought from India to Tibet. This coincided with the arrival of Padmasambhava and the Nyingma teachings.
