We are very happy to announce that on July 28, 2009 His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama— the head of state and spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, laureate of both the Noble Peace Prize in 1989 and the USA Congressional Gold Medal in 2007— opened our Traditional Tibetan Herbal Healthcare Clinic for the benefit of the people in Poland, Europe and the world at large. We are very happy that the methods of the traditional Tibetan medical system are now available in Poland. The tradition of Tibetan Buddhism brings hope for inner peace, honesty, non-violence, compassion, and kindness. Moreover, Buddhism urges us to behave in a moral way and follow the right direction with determination; even if we cannot help others, we should at least refrain from harming them.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has said that he is very proud to describe Tibetan Buddhism and traditional Tibetan medical system as a pure tradition of Nalanda University, one of the first great Buddhist universities in ancient India. The spirit of the traditional Tibetan medical system is very strong with the blessing of the Medicine Buddha and the energy of the five natural elements. This holistic approach shows us how to maintain health and quickly recover from all ailments through our natural abilities, prevent diseases, strengthen the immune system, relieve pain and prolong life and overall fitness. To achieve these goals, we need to ingest good food and drink, maintain a healthy lifestyle, sleep well and exercise. According to Buddhist tradition and also in the general approach of all living beings, health and happiness are the basic rights of each individual. It is our responsibility to promote the traditional Tibetan medical system and use its potential for the benefit of the entire humanity.
