“The Dalai Lama on What Matters Most” by Noriyuki Ueda

“When a person is sick, Tibetan medicine generally seeks to bring forth the body’s inherent natural healing power. But Western surgical procedures seek to cut out the part of the body that is not working, as though repairing a machine. But our bodies are not machines. When we rely too much on modern science and technology, our lifestyle itself becomes like a machine, and we move away from our basic human nature. [Emphasis added]
