 “After they searched all the planets around all the stars, they realized they had to become what they were looking for.”

Quote From Sun Simiao
(540 A.D to 682 A.D)
Sun Simaio was a famous traditional Chinsese Doctor of the Sui and Tang Dynsasty.
He was titled as China’s King of Medicine for his Significant contributions to Chinese Medicine and tremendous care to his patients.
I promise to follow the way of the Great Physician.
I will serve to live in harmony with nature, and teach my patients to do the same.
I will stay calm and completely committed to treating disease.
I will not give way to personal wishes and 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 suffering 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.
A Great Physician should not pay attention to status, wealth or age;
neither should he question whether the particular person is attractive or unattractive,
whether he is an enemy or friend, whether he is a Chinese or a foreigner, or finally, whether he is uneducated or educated.
He should meet everyone on equal grounds.
He should always act as if he were thinking of his close relatives.
