Early works

As a young scholar-practitioner, Dr. Pasang Yonten succeeded to author and self-publish three Tibetan-language books on Sowa Rigpa under challenging circumstances: Treasury of Tibetan Medical History, an award-winning account of Tibetan medical history (1989), Manual of Common Illnesses and Their Cures in Tibetan medicine, a highly practical clinical manual for inexperienced amchi (1990, 1995), and Dictionary of Tibetan Materia Medica, an extensive Tibetan dictionary of medical ingredient names (1991). These early works were originally published in India and have all gone out of print.

 Translations

Dictionary of Tibetan Materia Medica

Handbuch Tibetischen Medizin
Dr. Pasang’s second Tibetan publication, with the English title Dictionary of Tibetan Materia Medica, was subsequently edited and translated by Dr. Yonten Gyatso, and published in English (1998, Motilal Banarsidass). This edition was then translated into German (2001, Scherz Verlag) and published as Handbuch aller Heilmittel der Traditionellen Tibetanischen Medizin. Both the English and the German versions provide extra Latin scientific and vernacular identifications of the Tibetan medical ingredients, whereas the German edition also includes convenient alphabetical indexes that make it easier to look up specific names.
