 2016 - 100jähriges Jubiläum des Tibetischen Medizin Hospitals Men-Tsee-Khang

Das berühmteste Hospital der Tibetischen Medizin Men-Tsee-Khang (Tib. sman rtsis khang, 'Medizin-Astrologie-Institut'), das im Jahr 1916 auf Geheiß des 13. Dalai Lama in Lhasa gegründet wurde, feiert in diesem Jahr sein 100jähriges Jubiläum. 1961 wurde es im indischen Exil in Dharamsala durch den 14. Dalai Lama wieder etabliert mit einigen großen tibetischen Ärzten, die ebenfalls vor der chinesischen Besatzung geflohen waren. Später erhielt es den Namen Tibetan Medical and Astro Institute (TMAI).  Das Men-Tsee-Khang in Lhasa wurde nach der Kulturrevolution 1980 unter dem Namen 'Tibet Autonomous Region Hospital of Traditional Tibetan Medicine' in das chinesische Gesundheitssystem integriert.

LHASA, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Attendees of the first international forum on traditional Tibetan medicine gathered in Lhasa, Tibet, Tuesday to share ideas and celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first Tibetan hospital. Men-Tsee-Khang, also known as Tibetan Medical and Astro Institute, was founded in 1916. It was formally named Tibet Autonomous Region Hospital of Traditional Tibetan Medicine in 1980. Tibetan medicine, or Sowa Rigpa in Tibetan, is over 2,000 years old. It has absorbed influences from traditional Chinese, Indian and Arabic medicine. Similar to traditional Chinese medicine and in sharp contrast to biomedicine, Tibetan medicine, which is mainly practiced in Tibet and the Himalayan region, uses herbs, minerals and sometimes insects and animals to treat afflictions. It is particularly well known for its digestive, cardiovascular, and rheumatoid treatments. Tibetan medicine can be traced back to its roots in the region's monasteries and, even to this day, many of the most renowned doctors are often high monks. It uses a patient's urine to diagnose ailments, as the color, foam, smell and sediment of urine can help with diagnosis and inform treatment plans.



Men-Tsee-Khang commemorated the centenary event at Thekchen Choeling Tsuklakhang, Main Temple on 23 March, 2016.  The function commenced at 09:30 a.m. with the arrival of His Holiness the Dalai Lama as the chief guest accompanied by the members of the Govt. of Himachal Pradesh (Shri.  Thakur Singh Bharmori, Honourable Forest Minister, Govt. of Himachal Pradesh; Shri. Karan Singh, Honourable Ayush Minister, Govt. of Himachal Pradesh; and Shri. Ravi Thakur, Honourable MLA, Lahaul & Spiti, Govt. of Himachal Pradesh & sponsor of  Men-Tsee-Khang's Jispa Clinic); Mr. Irincey Mathhanov, Russian Member of Parliament; Mrs Irinchey Matkhanov and Ms. Julia Zhironkina, Director, Save Tibet Foundation, Russia.
