[Dr. Nida is] a physician endowed with expansive intellect and discriminating reason, whose heart is completely filled with a positive and pure intention to help others…he has ensured that Traditional Tibetan Medicine will not be erased, that it will be recuperated and will increase without deteriorating…he has followed the tradition of the Venerable Yuthok, and is truly an elucidating ornament of the teachings. In times to come he will absolutely benefit the teachings and traditions of Tibetan healing, and for this I am extremely glad.
