YUTHOK YONTEN GONPO - FATHER OF Himalayan MEDICINE
In the 8th century the physician and spiritual practitioner Yuthok the Older wrote the first version of the Four Medical Tantras. He predicted that the accomplished physician Yuthok the Younger would rewrite his work in the future.
400 years later a young doctor called Yuthok Yonten Gonpo from a village of Goshi Rethang, Western Tibet, edited the Four Tantras based on his collected knowledge and experience. This version came to be known as the ‘Bible of Tibetan Medicine’.

My wish is that Sowa Rigpa would spread like the infinite expanse of the sky in order to benefit all sentient beings.
-Yuthok Yonten Gonpo, Father of Himalayan Medicine
