The history of Tibetan Heritage

Dzongsar Tibetan Hospital has been preserving Tibetan medical lineage from ancient times on.

The modern lineage starts from Jamyang Kyentse Wangpo. He is the first lineage holder and he was very learned in traditional medical theories passed down from past generations such as the Earlier and Later Yothok Yonten Gonpos.  His student, Mipham Rinpoche praised him many times as a Sage Doctor.  He had learned from more than 150 knowledgeable Buddhist masters and his achievements in Buddhism are immeasurable.  Moreover, he started advocating non-sectarianism and wrote over one hundred pieces of scholarly work.

The second lineage holder of medical tradition: Shuchu Kunga Gyaltsan

Jamyang Kyentse Wangpo's main students were Jamgon Lodre Thaye, Mipham, the imperial physician of Dege King, Renchen Wayse and his personal doctor, Shuchu ungaa Gyaltsan. Among them, Jamgon Lodre Thaye and Miphan are very famous for their scholarly works on Buddhism and medicine.

The third lineage holder: Nyira Kunga Sengge

Shuchu Khanga Gyaltsan and Mipham's main disciple was Dege King's imperial physician, Kunga Sengge. He established the Dzongsar Tibetan Medical School and fostered many capable Tibetan physicians.

The fourth lineage holder: Tsering Phuntsok
