  • Seven Years In Tibet - 303 words
    Harrer was a young Austrian in the mid-1930's when he and a group of friends went to India to climb the Himalayas. World War II broke out while they were there, and they were imprisoned by the British as enemy aliens. The group made several attempts to escape the internment camp at Dehra-Dun, and finally, at the third attempt, Harrer and his friend Peter Aufschnaiter succeeded. They spent three years travelling (walking) through the Asian wilds, chased at the beginning by British soldiers, until they entered Tibet. At the time, entry into Tibet by foreigners was absolutely illegal, and of course they two men had no documentation, money, or supplies to ease their journey or establish their bo ...

  • Crossroads Of Tibet - 859 words
    Tibet, the roof of the world, is the highest and the most isolated country on earth. Located between China and Nepal, imagine a place tucked safely away from the world, hidden by walls of snowcapped mountains, rich with strange beauty and innocence. Tibetans are very confined people, their clothes are plain and simple like ropes but are actually silky and thick, unlike Chinese gowns which are flamboyant. They may have old fetchers but that is because the cold makes them look dry and old, but they are actually very pleasant people. During those days, they did not allow foreigners to enter their country. They were not hiding anything but they believed that foreign people would want to moderniz ...

  • The Tibetan Independence Movement - 1,102 words
    The Independence of Tibet is one of the hottest topics in the world today, undoubtedly due in part to the massive media exposure and attention given to the Dalai Lama and his movement in America. Recent Movies such as Kundun, The Wind Horse, and the extremely popular Seven Years in Tibet have had an astounding impact on the arousal of international awareness of Tibets situation with China. This impact and the establishment of the Tibetan Independence Movement as a major issue on the international platform has lead to the argument by supporters of Chinese rule of Tibet that interventionists have based their arguments on history according to Hollywood. Have these films swayed public opinion an ...

  • Gengis Kahn - 424 words
    Born Temujin in 1167 A.D., Genghis Khan and his mother and siblings were abandoned by their tribe after his father was poisoned.

  • Richard Gere And The Dali Lama - 1,303 words
    During the seventh century, Buddhism was introduced into Tibet. Tibet was controlled by the Chinese empire from the 1600s until 1912, when most of it gained its independence. Half a century ago, in 1949, Chinese troops invaded Tibet, once again ending it's isolation beyond the Himalayan mountains. The Chinese communists rejected Tibet's unique brand of Buddhism and forbade the practicing of any such religion. At first, the Dalai Lama, Tibet's spiritual and temporal leader, was allowed to serve as a domestic authority there. Later, however, in the midst of the invasion, the Dalai Lama and over 100,000 Tibetans were forced to flee into exile in India. After 1959, things only got worse. Over on ...

During World War II, the progress of Korean literature was blocked by a Japanese ban on native culture. After the Korean War, however, new writers emerged who drew their inspiration from contemporary trends in world literature, and there was a surge of literary activity. Beginning in the 12th century the samurai, provincial warriors who resembled medieval European knights, began to assume power, though the emperor continued to hold authority in theory. The samurai often managed the estates of aristocrats, and sometimes they held land in their own right. Rivalry between two warrior clan ...

  • Buddha - 1,102 words
    ... ne of the major religions in the world today. Even during Gautama's life conversions to Buddhism were common in the small community where it was practiced. Perhaps many poor people, who knew what it was like to suffer, were able to identify with Buddha's philosophies on pain and sorrow. Since the Buddha never asked to be worshiped as a god, common people may have found the religion less demanding and easier to believe in. Buddha was also an unbiased person who did not believe in the caste system and did not think that people of low social status should be shunned and cast from society. By accepting the Buddha's faith, the caste system became less popular and people began to question it. ...

  • Buddhaism - 1,537 words
    we have all been born on this earth as part of one great human family ultimately each of us is just a human being like everyone else: we all desire happiness and do not want suffering." The birth of the first Buddha started out with a dream. Queen Maha-Maya of the Sakya warrior caste had a dream when the moon was full during the midsummer festival. Four guardian angels lifted her up and took her to the Himalaya Mountains where they laid her under a sal-tree. While there she was attended to by the wives of the guardian angels, who bathed her and removed every humanly stain from her being. Then they clothed her, anointed her with perfumes and decorated her with flowers. The future Buddha had ...

Buddhism is an analytic religion based on thought and proving a belief. Although early Buddhism did revolve around some mythology and some still does today, much of the mythology has been replaced by scientific findings. Early Buddhist mythology believed that the universe consisted of innumerable world systems throughout infinite space. In these world systems existed supernatural beings regarded as spirits. These spirits were good and evil and some were considered semi-divine beings. The good and evil spirits brou ...

  • Genghis Kahn - 1,120 words
    Genghis Khan was considered a great military leader. And in many ways he was. Genghis Khan didnt use the size of his army to defeat an enemy. He used logic and cunning. This was one of the traits that made Genghis Khan as well known as he was. Genghis Khan was born and raised on the Mongolian steppe some time in the 1160s.(Boyle 623) After his father, Yesugei, was killed by a rival tribe named the Tartars, Genghis and his brother Qasar, and his two half-brothers, Bektair and Belgutai were left with their mother Holun.

  • Nuclear Nonproliferation And China - 857 words
    This paper will examine Nuclear Nonproliferation and China. I will also discuss the land, climate, and history of China. At 3,705,751 square miles, China is just larger than the United States. Because mountains or desert covers much of China, the majority of people live in the east, where rivers and plains allow for productive agriculture. While summers are warmer and winters are colder, China's climate is much like the United States. Monsoons cause frequent summer floods. China's geographic features are vastly different between regions, ranging from the Himalayan Mountains to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (the "roof of the world) to subtropical islands (Peoples 65) (Geography 320). The Chinese ...

  • Ending Of British Isolation - 1,208 words
    With the rest of Europe being controlled in a complex string of alliances and treaties during the later half of the 19th century, Britain remained uninvolved. Their policy of Splendid Isolation was to keep themselves out of the quarrels and disputes of continental Europe, and allow them to focus on their overseas empire. With the crowing of a new Kaiser in Germany, and the interest of other nations to hold overseas colonies, Britains colonial empire was under attack. Their interest to focus on their vast empire would eventually lead them into disputes with other European nations. It would ultimately be their reason of going into isolation that would end it. In 1888 Kaiser William II ascended ...
