Dutsi is the Tibetan term for Amrita, and usually refers to a herbal medicine made during ceremonies involving many high lamas in Tibetan Buddhism, known as drubchens.

It usually takes the form of small, dark-brown grains that are taken with water, or dissolved in very weak solutions of alcohol, and is said to improve physical and spiritual wellbeing.

Dutsi features in the mythology of Tibetan Buddhism, specifically the so-called Legend of Chakdor. According to this, all the buddhas gather on top of Mount Meru to consider how to obtain dutsi, the elixir of life, as an antidote to Hala, the source of human illness that the demons have in their possession. They churn the ocean and procure the dutsi which they entrust to the protector, Vajrapani. However, the monster Rahu manages to steal it, drinks it and urinates it back into the vessel that it had been put into by the Buddhas. Realising what has happened, Vajrapani sets out to kill Rahu. He questions the Sun as to the demon's whereabouts, but the Sun fears retaliation from Rahu. The Moon felt no different, but still was willing to help the cause, and reveals where Rahu is hiding. Vajrapani slays him over and over again, and wherever the blood of Rahu dripped onto the surface of this earth, it caused to spring up all manner of medicinal plants - which are now used to make dutsi.
