Psychiatric nurse, Terry Clifford, travelled to Tibet, Nepal and Northern India to study traditional Tibetan medical and psychiatric methods. Deeply impressed by her personal qualities and dedication, her work was blessed by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche; His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa bestowed the Medicine Buddha initiation. Tibetan doctors translated esoteric Tibetan medical texts and concepts, shared experiences from their medical practices and gave her traditional Tibetan herbal formulas.

Her authoritative work, whilst giving particular emphesis to the treatment of psychiatric problems, reflects the fundamental interconnectedness of Tibetan general medicine and psychiatry with Buddhist philosophy. Her writing flows with insight, humour and intelligence. The depth of her understanding and clarity of thought resulting in a lucid and inteligible account which presents for the first time a comprehensive introduction to a medical tradition that has much to offer the Western world.
paperback; 268 pages.
