This is one of the biggest medicinal prescription creations of Yuan Dynasty. Chinese scholars appreciated Shatumusu, a Mongolian lord placed in Jang Chin Jung of Jangshi region during Yesuntumur Khaan’s (Taitin Khaan of Yuan Dynasty) period. Complete Writing of Four Foundations66 stated that Shatumusu or Shatimus is a Mongolian. During his assignment period in Jang chin jung, Shatumusu collected revised and improved medicinal recipes of that time and compiled the experimented efficient ones into his book. The book was released in 15 volumes. U Ching wrote an introduction to the book saying “the book was printed with wooden blocks and was beneficial to many people”. Unfortunately, the book has not been found in China in its full size. Currently few volumes have been found including 5 volumes found in Complete Writing of Four Foundations which have been compiled into 24 chapters later. Later on 188 recipes were collected from series of medical book called Danguchotan written during Chin’s time and published in 1957. Six tenth of the book has been lost. 3 books in 15 volumes were found in Japan but still not complete. It contained 315 recipes. Finally 344 recipes were collected from above mentioned source and other sources such as Fujipan and Herbal Medication of Ming and compiled into a book called Revised Edition of Rujutan Experimented Recipes.
Khutaibilie and his “Circulation Channel of the Gold Orchid” However we do not have certain written proofs of origin of Khutaibilie, the great scholar of Yuan Dynasty who made significant contribution to development of acupuncture and cauterization practices of Traditional Mongolian Medicine, most people agree he is Mongolian. He wrote “Circulation Channel of the Gold Orchid,” (Jin Lang Circulation Channel) the book is well-known among researchers of medical history. Unfortunately, the book has disappeared. In book such as History of Yuan Dynasty nothing was mentioned about this creation and Khutaibilie. Probably, when Yuan Dynasty was destroyed in Togoontumur Khaan’s period by Chinese protesters, the book was burned.
We have noted some records in the following sources: Hua She vin took citations from two books of “Spread of 14 Chanels” (1303) “The Great Commpendium of Acupuncture and Moxibustion” (1601) by Yang Ji-zhou Jev of Ming dynasty. The latter book said “Jin lang” written by Khutaibilie in the period of Yuan dynasty. Son Gu van ji edited the book. Shi Bing lung wrote an introduction in 1303”. This said also it included 2 pictures of chest and back, 3 argyn handash (yang channel), and flow of 14 paths with explanation, attached by pictures and presented northern country. Hen Shi dun made carved print in front of it. This book is considered to be an interesting creation in terms of acupuncture and cauterizations as well as paths.
