The Atlas of Tibetan Medicine is the illustrative material to all four volumes of Tibetan medicine's locus classicus, the Four Tantras (rGyud bzhi), and their commentary, the Blue Beryl (or: Lapis Lazuli, Vaidurya mgon po). It is kept at the collection of the History Museum of Buryatia in Ulan-Ude. It took more than sixteen years (from 1687 until 1703) to complete the full set of these medical paintings. The following includes a brief description of the contents of the Atlas, how the copy was brought from Tibet to Buryatia, how it was transferred to the Tsugol manba datshang and to the Aschagat medical school and finally, how it got to the Museum of Atheism in Ulan-Ude.
