DAKNANG or PURE VISION is key Buddhist philosophical concept of experiencing and seeing everything as pure in its true nature. It brings transformation, joy, kindness and wakefulness to the hearts of beings, and dispels the ignorance of the mind, which is the primary cause of all sufferings.
In ancient medical text (Gyudshi) it is said: “No matter how high the bird may soar in the sky, it is never separated from its shadow; likewise, even though beings may live in health and harmony, as long as they possess ignorance, it is impossible for them to be separated from diseases and sufferings.
With DAKNANG we are creating the bridge between the ancient Himalayan knowledge of healing (Sowa Rigpa) and modern medical science. Sowa Rigpa is based on centuries of experience, systematic, logical approach and gives the complete understanding of inner body and its relation with outer environment. Its aim is the treatment of diseases by creating the balance of fundamental energies and elements and maintaining a good health and long life.
DAKNANG has been created with genuine intention of helping people to achieve this sacred balance. We are following the pure and unbroken medical lineage, relying on knowledge, experience and aspirations of Dr. Sherab who is the heart student of late Dr. Trogawa Rinpoche. We are not creating anything new or unknown, but simply revealing and integrating in the West that which has been known for centuries.
It is said that is order to achieve happiness, we need to create congruous causes. Therefore we abandoned the use of any animal products and we engage in proper harvesting and cultivation of medical herbs, thus maintaining the harmony with outer environment. We wish to bring the awareness that inner health and strength is based not only on body elements and state of mind, but also on our interconnection with environment and all living beings.
