But after being exiled, the Dalai Lama’s spiritual, political and moral authority was rooted through his advocacy for Tibetan freedom from the Chinese and he was admired by the West for his peaceful resistance towards China, which earned him a Noble Prize. Second of all, in the West, the Dalai Lama is viewed as a living Ghandhi for applying his pacifist policies regarding China’s forced entrance into Tibet. Third of all, his modern view of Buddhism as well as his approaches to significant public issues like the human rights, the oppression of the minority and the environment, affected and influenced the West significantly. The combination of these three points allowed him to meet with world leaders.
He has no sense of superiority on belief and identity, which is worth learning for Christians in China. He Weifang, a law professor from Peking University said that missionaries made great contributions to the higher education in modern China.

Mentioning Gandhi, and stating his thought son the best ways peacefully cause change. This is showing the audience that Chavez realizes that these men have proved their methods the best, and he doesn't want to change them just try to use them for the benefit of the people. “ The boycott, as Gandhi taught, is the most nearly perfect instrument of nonviolent change, allowing masses of people to participate actively in a cause”. This quote really does work so well because of the organization that is used by Chavez to convey Gandhi’s message.

3.2 The Doppelgänger Motif in The Monk The Monk exemplifies the doppelgänger motif through the character of Ambrosio, as the story follows his fall from holiness to immorality. At the beginning of the novel, Ambrosio is the abbot of a monastery of Madrid and idolized by everyone. Consequently, he is obviously proud of himself and feels superior to normal people because he has never committed any sins. He has no divided self, or, at least, his honorable self prevails, while the other is hidden somewhere: “As yet his other passions lay dormant; But they only needed to be once awakened, to display themselves with violence as great and irresistible” (Lewis 1973: 239). Ambrosio was originally good, as Lewis claims in a few passages, he was “corrupted”
Therefore, there would have been no bloodshed in Korea. And now, the most pointless war in history of mankind, the Vietnam war, fought literally because the American government didn’t want communism anywhere, yet they overlooked the fact that south Vietnam’s leader was a horrible man who didn’t believe in human rights and that the guerillas of the Viet Cohn were not massacring the citizens of south Korea, but were actually coming to peoples’ homes and helping them with their farms. All they did was share their communist beliefs, they didn’t even force them upon them, and most of the south Vietnamese liked the idea. North Vietnam didn’t even use brutal tactics against their people, like most “communist” countries. Doesn’t sound like a problem, riiiiiiiight?

Mr. Dolphus knows that he isn’t like the rest of the town so he tries to give people of the town a reason so he can still fit in (Lee 268). He tricks the folks of the town so the hate gets passed by false reasons.
It could be different reputations for the same person, which based on religions and the way community know about him. For example : Dalai Lama has different reputations as a leader and a human rights activist as well, but his reputation is not seen as this picture everywhere because his reputation is different in the west , in his home Tibet and in his enemy 's base China and myths and truths.
