DESCRIPTION 

Buddhism was introduced to Thailand from India upon the arrival of Indian priests some 2500 years ago. In 1292 King Rama Khamheng authorized the Theravada sect of Buddhism as a state religion. The practice of Thai medicine is said to have developed out of a deep connection to early Buddhist influences and was, therefore, protected by the local temple, or Wat. Medical texts, such as this one, were typically written on coconut leaves, however, this depiction of anatomical acupressure points was created on charcoal coated mulberry paper. The document was written in an ancient Northern Thai script that is no longer practiced.
