Abstract:

"Sun Simiao is one of the most, if not the most, interesting figures in the history of Chinese medicine. Sun Simiao was born in the 6th Century, around 581 A.D., at the beginning of the short-lived Sui Dynasty (581-618 A.D.) and just prior to the unification of north and south China (589 A.D.). He carried out his medical work and writing during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.) and died in 682 A.D., having completed two 30-volume works on medical practice that would establish his place as a central figure in the field of herbal medicine. Sun Simiao has been worshipped as the "Medicine God" (actually, the Medicine Buddha, a deity invoked during healing practices) or, more commonly, as the "King of Medicine" (yaowang; referring to herb medicines, yao). During the Ming Dynasty, in 1527 A.D., eight stone tablets engraved with quotations from his works were erected in his birthplace (Huayuan, in Yaoxian County, Shanxi Province) and to this day there are activities each year in his hometown celebrating his memory. In Beijing, a Temple to the King of Medicine was constructed; another temple to Sun Simiao was built in Kiangxi"--The author's introduction.
