Dictionary of Tibetan Materia Medica is the first diictionary of its kind. All the entries are arranged in Tibetan alphabetical order which will enablethe readers to find the names of medicinal ingredients easily. In this English version the translator and editor, Dr. Yonten Gyatso, has given Latin names of almost all the medicines.

Most of the materials are compliled from Sel gon sel phrem, the most famous text on Tibetan pharmacopoeia, and from Rin chen khruns dpe, one of the oldest and most reliable texts. Therefore, for the non-Tibetan readers this dictionary presents materials from the above texts which are translated for the first time into English.

This dictionary, with its many special features, will be of immense use and value for students, research scholars, doctors and pharmacologists of Tibetan medicine, and for ethno-botanists.

This dictionary, first published in 1994, is the first of its kind. All the entries are arranged in Tibetan alphabetical order. Inclusion, in the main entry, of different names of medicinal ingredients such as names dervied from foreign languages, synonym, secret and poetical names will prove extremely useful for identification.

Description of every medicinal ingredient and information on their tastes, powers and uses are also given according to some of the most popular texts. In this English version, Latin names of almost all the medicines are given. This edition is much improved and enlarged with over 3,000 main entries.
