Tao and Dharma: Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda ~ Robert Svoboda, Arnie Lade

Tao and Dharma: Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda explores the enduring features of humanity’s longest and continually practiced systems of medicine. These two indigenous healing arts arising independently in China and India communed and exchanged experience, techniques, and therapeutic substances over the epochs of their development. This book’s interesting and valuable comparison provides a pioneer effort in examining side by side two great systems of medicine, studying closely the historical, theoretical and practical relationships. In so doing, it offers these ancient paradigms into the practice of modern healing for a synergistic, inclusive approach.

Robert E. Svoboda is the first Westerner ever to graduate from a college of Ayurveda (in 1980) and be licensed to practice Ayurveda in India. During and after his formal Ayurvedic training, his mentor, the Aghori Vimalananda, tutored him in Ayurveda, Yoga, Jyotish, Tantra and other forms of classical Indian lore. After moving to India in 1973, he lived there for more than a decade. Since 1985 he has traveled the world lecturing, consulting, teaching and writing. The author of more than a dozen books and audio works, he has served as Adjunct Faculty at the Ayurvedic Institute, Albuquerque, NM, and Bastyr University, Kenmore, WA.
