Classical Chinese Medicine Oath

I promise to follow the way of the great physician.
I will strive to live in harmony with nature, and teach my patients to do the same.
I will stay calm and completely committed when treating disease.
I will not give way to personal wishes or desires, but above all else hold and nurture a deep feeling of compassion.
I will be devoted to the task of saving the sacred spark of life in every creature that still carries it.
I will strive to maintain a clear mind and be willing to hold myself to the highest standards.
It will be my duty to diagnose sufferings and treat disease.
I will not be boastful about my skills and not driven by the greed for material things.

Above all, I will keep an open heart.
As I move on the right path I will receive great happiness as a reward without asking for anything in return.
