Tibetan Medicine Practitioner Smanuna

Smanuna, a Tibetan medicine practitioner and trained Amchi, runs a guest house in Leh. Through Yuthog Foundation he works to preserve Sowa Rigpa practice in Ladakh. At his guest house tourists can consult him directly, with clinic services also being available so they can consult this important aspect of Ladakhi culture further.

Buddhist texts contain several medical metaphors, with the Buddha often depicted as the “Supreme Physician,” capable of curing all illnesses through devotion, meditation and thought control. This concept suggests that suffering is inherent to all living beings entrapped within an endless cycle of rebirth; only spiritual paths offer hope in terms of relieving it.

While Buddhist teachings in general do not constitute profane practices, medical knowledge and practice related to amchis are included as part of its canon. Their place is distinct from other sciences considered “interior,” such as yoga or psychology; monastic instruction therefore integrates their study without forcing it onto students as ritualized therapeutic practices.

Lobzang was an exceptional and helpful driver! He made our three-day tour through Nubra Valley and Pangong Lake very safe, speaking perfect English and being extremely punctual ensuring we arrived on schedule to our destinations. Furthermore, he even went the extra mile in helping arrange extra tours and activities! I would highly recommend him for any trip to Ladakh!
