Tibetan medicine is one of the oldest and most comprehensive medical systems in existence. It is a holistic philosophy that seeks to maintain the harmonious operation and balance of all the energies that constitute the human psycho-physical being. Based on the centuries-old Buddhist study of the mind, it has provided what seems to be miracle cures for diseases often considered untreatable by allopathic medicine.

Dr. Dorjee is currently Chief Advisor at the Tibetan Medicine & Astrology Institute (www.men-tsee-khang.org). Dr. Dorjee's past four visits to Emory University and the symposia he held with Emory medical scientists paved the way for the well-known "lojong" study, compassion research study now taking place at Emory. Lojong uses a cognitive, analytic approach to challenge a person's unexamined thoughts and emotions towards other people, with the long-term goal of developing altruistic emotions and behavior towards all people.

Dr. Pema Dorjee has been awarded various honors throughout his career, including the Gold Medal and the Gem of Alternative Medicine from the Indian Board of Alternative Medicine in recognition of his dedicated service to Tibetan medicine. He has written several books and numerous articles on Tibetan medicine.
