"Compassion as Remedy in Tibetan Medicine, is a beautiful work that stands on its own in the field of medicine and should inspire countless physicians throughout the world to set their practice within the sphere of compassionate heart, combined with intelligence, pure intention, skillfulness, diligence, and social ethics. It might be considered as a Buddhist equivalent to the Hippocratic Oath, albeit much vaster and deeper in its scope, since it describes various kinds of physicians from the superior ones who give us the means to free ourselves from the causes of suffering, to the ordinary ones who focus only on addressing immediate illnesses. In doing so, Dr. Jampa Yonten, who has himself centered his medical practice around compassion, has made a beautiful gift to our modern world, which is much in need of the "good heart" advocated by His Holiness the Dalai Lama." -- Matthieu Ricard, author of Altruism, The Power of Compassion to Transform Ourselves and the World"This book will benefit all readers including physicians, healthcare practitioners, patients and those who are interested in maintaining good health, which is based on practice of compassion along with neuroscience." -- Dr. Tsewang Tamding. Visiting Physician of His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama"In this book, many personal anecdotes bear testimony to the power of healing when the motivation of the doctor is that of genuine compassion towards the sick. I highly recommend this book to doctors of all persuasions, both modern and traditional." -- Geshe Dorji Damdul, Director, Tibet House, New Delhi"In this context, Dr. Jampa Yonten with his stint dealing with various types of patients, in a very experiential manner interspersed with many moving anecdotes has brought out all Compassionate aspects of healing and The Healer in this book. A must read book for all health practitioners worth his and her compassion." -- Dr. Dorjee Rabten Nyeshar, CMO, Mentseekhang, Banglore"In this book, Dr. Yonten highlights the "unconditional love" and "unbiased compassion" two most important inner ingredients in Traditional Tibetan Medicine practitioners toolbox. Therefore, all healthcare professionals must integrate to their practice to benefit both themselves and their patients." -- Sonam Dorjee (Science Pala)
