These Good and Wise Advisors (Kaliyanamitra) Dharma Master teachers include Arya Venerables Monk Doctors Nagarjuna (Sushruta Samhita), Ashvaghosha, Aryasura, Aryadeva, Jian Zhen Shr and other lay healers such as Shen Nong - a transformation body of (Bhaisajya Raja Bodhisattva, Jivaka, Charaka (Caraka Samhita), Vagbhata (Astanga Hridayam), Zhang Zhongjing, Hua Tuo, Wang Shuhe, Huangfu Mi, Ge Hong, Tao Hongjing, Chao Yuanfang, Sun Simiao, Wang Tao, Qian Yi, Liu Wansu, Zhang Zihe, Li Dongyuan / Li Gao, Zhu Danxi, Li Shizhen, Wang Kentang, Wang Youxing, Zhang Jingyue, Ye Tianshi, Wang Qingren, Wu Shangxian, Vasant Lad, and Dharma Healers such as Kumarajiva, Shantideva, Chandrakirti, Chandragomin, Vasubandhu, Asanga, Hui Neng, Atisha, Kamalashila, Dharmarakshita, Tsong Khapa, Thogme Zangpo, Patanjali, Sushruta, Charaka, Vagbhata, Nichiren, Hsu Yun, Hsuan Hua, Shen Kai, Tenzin Gyatso, Kyabje Zopa, Ajahn Chah, and other modern day masters. We consider them to be in accord with Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua’s “Seven Guidelines for Recognizing Genuine Teachers

Nalanda Online University's teachings are based especially on the Dharma Flower Lotus Sutra, the Avatamsaka Sutra, the Shurangama Sutra, the Ksitigarbha Sutra, the Bhaisajya Guru Sutra, the Dharani Sutra, the Vajra Sutra, the Prajna Paramita Hridayam Heart Sutra, and their commentaries (shastras) by the above Arya Tripitakacharya Dharma Masters. In respect (bhakti), we say “Om Namo” to them all for their often selfless (no self) and anonymous contributions to Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine.
