    The Analysis on Lee Je-Ma's Sasang Structure Which Focused on Human Kang Tae-Gon, Park Seong-Sik Dept. of Sasang Consitutional Medicine, College of Oriental Medicene, Dongguk Univ. 1. Objectives This Study is to comprehend the Sasang structure created by Lee Je-Ma. 2. Methods We analyzed Dongyisusebowon(東醫壽世保元) & Gyukchigo(格致藁) which contain the contents of ‘Heaven-Human-Nature-Order(天人性命)’ and ‘Affairs-Mind-Body-Objects(事心身物)’. 3. Results and Conclusions 1) The structure of Sasang is divided into two, which are ‘Talent(才能的 部分)-Action(行爲的 部分)’ and ‘Self examination(正己的 部分)-Perception of mankind(知人的 部分)’. 2) ‘Talent-Action’ is the ontological structure of the Sasang. ‘Self examination-Perception of mankind’ is the administrative structure of the Sasang. 3) The ontological structure of Sasang is essential concept which is explaining the existence of mankind. An administrative structure of Sasang is operative concept which makes human as oneself. 4) It is necessary to have the insight to organize these four parts into the one organic whole if one has to comprehend the profound meaning of Sasang. 5) Four parts of Sasang structure could be matched as ‘Heaven(天)-Affairs(事), Human(人)-Objects(物)’, ‘Nature(性)-Mind(心), Order(命)-Body(身)’.

    Ayurveda in Mongolia from Antiquity to 1937

    Ya. Ganbayar , N. Tumurbaatar | 2007, 19(3) | pp.300~307 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    We have studied the history of the introduction of Ayurveda medicine in Mongolia. During the periods of the Hunnu (400 BC-200 AD), Ikh Nirun (400-600 AD), and Uigur Dynasty (800-1,000 AD), Ayurveda (Indian Medicine) was introduced to Mongolia along with Buddhism from the Middle Asian countries Kushan, Khotan, Sogd and Uigar. Ayurveda was fully introduced to Mongolia under the deep influence of Tibetan Buddhism from the 13th century. Mongolia’s first Medical School, following the Tibetan tradition, was established in 1662. In Mongolia more than 40 Medical Schools were established from 1662-1937. 26 Ayurvedic treatises were translated into the Mongolian language and published in 1742-1749. Since the 14th century Mongols have been translating Tibetan Medical books into the Mongolian language, of which we have today found more than ten. Over the centuries, Mongolian scholars have written many commentaries to these medical texts.
