Indian Medicine in Buddhism Beyond India.

Ancient treatises, Hindu and non-Hindu alike, contain numerous metaphors, similes, and references to disease and healing. Indian Medicine in Buddhism Beyond India. 50. II. The Content of Early Buddhist Monastic Medicine. Science of Medicine and Surgery in Buddhist India.

In this book Kenneth Zysk shows that Buddhist scriptures some centuries older than this contain abundant information about medical practice, and are our earliest evidence for a rational approach to medicine in India. He argues that Buddhism and the medical tradition were mutually supportive: that Buddhist monks and people associated with them contributed to the development of medicine, while their skills as physical as well as spiritual healers enhanced their reputation and popular support.

Zysk shows that the Buddhist scriptures some centuries older than this . But it is also an arms race.

The Buddhist tales about the legendary Indian physician, Jivaka, recount . Still this book is enjoyable and, in parts, compelling.

The Buddhist tales about the legendary Indian physician, Jivaka, recount examples of his odd and effective cures, such as how he restored the protruding eyeball of a wrestler by pulling the tendons of his heels-a treatment developed from noticing that the eyes of a corpse floating in the river opened and closed as a fish nibbled at its heels. Zysk claims that it was through the work of countless itinerant doctors and ascetics that Indian medicine evolved out of the magico-religious tradition of the Vedic period into the empirico-rational tradition of ayurveda.

Asceticism and Healing in Ancient India: Medicine in the Buddhist Monastery. This paper is a philological study of twelve Sri Lankan medical manuscripts preserved in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, and the Cambridge University Library. It shows the impact of Buddhism on the development of traditional medicine in South Asia and the important role played by South Indian Vaidyas in the propagation of medical knowledge in Sri Lanka.

The rich Indian medical tradition is usually traced back to Sanskrit sources, the earliest of which cannot much antedate the common era. Zysk shows that the Buddhist scriptures some centuries older than this contain abundant information about medical practice, and are our earliest evidence for a rational approach to medicine in India. He argues that Buddhism and the medical tradition were mutually supportive: that Buddhist monks and people associated with them contributed to the development of medicine, while their skills as physical as well as spiritual healers enhanced their reputation and popular support. Drawing on a wide range of textual, archaeological, and secondary sources, Zysk first presents an overview of the history of Indian medicine in its religious context. He then examines primary literature from the Pali Buddhist Canon and from the Sanskrit treatises of Bhela, Caraka, and Susruta. By close comparison of these two bodies of literature Zysk convincingly shows how the theories delineated in the medical classics actually became practice.
