The second part deals with the topic of medical knowledge and its transmission, professionalisation, and questions of identity among Tibetans across geographical and national boundaries in diverse contexts of Tibetan culture. The third part discusses the theme of connections between various body images, practices, and cosmologies in Tibetan societies. The fourth part focuses on important historical and philological aspects of Tibetan medicine, critically assessing literary sources or combining written texts with oral sources.
