...where your health is in compassionate hands
Gajang Medical Society
The Gaden Jangtse Thoesam Norling Monastery has established a
clinic to cater to the health needs of the 20,000 Tibetan
refugees in the Mundgod Dogueling Tibetan refugee’s settlement.
We didn’t have any clinic till 2001.
In 2002 we sat aside a small house as our clinic. It was named
as Gaden Jangtse Medicine Buddha Clinic. But it was too small
and when we received many patients the rooms were crowded and
congested. We felt the need of a new building and present clinic
took form. In 2004 we registered with the Indian Societies
Registration Act of 1960 as
”Gajang Medical Society” with
diverse and all-comprising aims and objectives.
Most of the Tibetan refugees have come from Tibet and due to
sudden change in the climate and diet they faced many health
problems. They suffer from diseases they hadn’t even known
existed while in Tibet . Their health deteriorated and later it
became almost impossible to treat. Even going to local hospitals
for treatment is a great problem as there is a language and
communication barrier. It is always very hard for patients and
the doctors to understand each other. Also doctors charge
exorbitant fees that these simple monks, who spend their lives
studying Dharma can’t afford. Under such circumstance, diagnosis
and treatment of the disease becomes very difficult.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has always been encouraging the
monastic establishments to work for the education and health in
the Tibetan communities. This would make a real contribution to
the welfare of the Tibetans.
