Vision

The mission of Sorig Khang International is to preserve and promote Traditional Tibetan Medicine, known in Tibetan as Sowa Rigpa (གསོ་བ་རིག་པ།) or Sorig.

“Facing the imminent loss of Tibetan culture, philosophy, literature, science, and religion, the Sorig Khang International Foundation is to be contributing to the preservation and propagation of Traditional Tibetan Medicine. In particular, the continuity of the holistic Tibetan healing sciences in their theory and their practice, as well as in their philosophy, and in its closely connected spirituality as a complete system in the Yuthok Nyingthig transmission lineage, is to be protected.”

— From the Sorig Khang International Foundation Charter
