School starts up again soon

It's been a busy summer, with many courses and things to do. We just finished an intensive course on Torso Wounds, which is something more or less like tenth century medieval battle medicine.

The instructor for our course was Gen Yang Ga, a cheerful and energetic man, who is doing his PhD at Harvard. He was a joy to study with-- one of the world's leading experts on the textual history of the Four Tantras.

Well, it's back to school again in two weeks.

Wounds, neat! The history must be so interesting. What's next on the Tibetan Medicine menu? Maybe to explain it needs a new post!

Well, what's next is internal diseases beginning with indigestion and its effects.
