Dr. Trogawa Rinpoche & Chagpori Tibetan Medical Institute

Dr. Trogawa RinpocheOne of the most inspiring human beings that I have ever met was the late Dr. Trogawa Rinpoche. I had the privilege to have seen him up close and been around him where he worked.

One of the things I remember vividly was a time when he was working in London for 2 weeks. This was at a location where I worked. One week he worked in one room adjoining a garden on the north side of the property. The week he worked in that room the flowers blossomed on that side of the garden adjoining the room; I never saw them flourish with such vibrancy. The following week he worked in another room which adjoined the garden on the south side and the flowers on that side of the garden blossomed again the bountifulness of the blossoms were truly phenomenal.

Yet with all this presence, Dr.Trogawa was one of the most humble persons I ever met, he also carried a mischievous sense of humour that was so surprising that anytime it occurred it always struck people who did not know him like thunder. They could not believe that in his soft spoken holy manner he could bring such subtle nuances to situations in a flash of a few words that left everyone laughing.

Professionally, his skills as a doctor and diagnostician were in a realm that I never experienced or saw in almost 40 years being around healing and holistic health care. A very good friend of mine was going through a heavy stressful period having returned from a long journey to the East where he had picked up “an entity” from being in the midst of conflicts between certain organizations. This was identified by Kirlian photographs in his aura. Whatever he did to change this had no effect. He saw Dr. Trogawa for an appointment, but never told him the whole background to what he was going through except that his energy was very disturbed and that he was not feeling himself.

After 2 minutes of taking his pulse and going through his diagnostic procedures. Dr. Trogawa told him that he had picked up a disturbing energy from an overseas journey and pinpointed where on his body it was located. He then showed him some breathing exercises to do. Two weeks later my friend was back to his usual self with no reoccurrence some 5 years later.

From time to time on his visits to London, I had the opportunity to chat with him and seek guidance. He always highlighted one thing; keep a calm peaceful mind, regardless what is happening in your life, this will always help you. I am still working to accomplish this, as one would say; it is a work in progress.

Fortunately, we have the good fortune that his legacy is being maintained by his nephew Dr. Teinlay Trogawa who he personally trained and who now runs his Chagpori Tibetan Medical Institute. This was the first medical college that was established in Tibet in 1696 by the regent of the Great 5th Dalai Lama. This college was completely destroyed by the occupying forces of China in 1959. Then in 1992 it was re-established in Darjeeling, India by Trogawa Rinpoche.

Personally, I am passionate about seeing that Dr. Trogawa Rinpoche’s legacy continue and the skills he developed and way of working with them be passed on to future generations. For this reason I invite visitors to my website to send donations to;
