  1. Traditional Tibetan Medicine is taught at the University of Minnesota by the faculty of the Department of Complimentary and Alternative Medicine. At the usggestion of the senior faculty, I coresponded with the AYUSH administrators to get Government of India recognition for this branch of medicine. At that time some senior advisers of Tibetan medicine did not want any help from us. In view of that experience it is a great plesure to see that HH Dalai Lama is now recommending the integration of Tibetan Medicine with the Traditional Medicine of India. I support this move. Very best wishes. Gundu H. R. Rao, Emeritus Professor, University of Minnesota.
