In 1950 and 1959 there were two major events that contributed to the current conflict between China and Tibet. An event in 1950 was when the Tibet and China conflict started because it was when China had invaded Tibet. Also, the uprising in Lhasa in 1959 was when thousands of Tibetan citizens had died because of China’s conflict. Evidence of this is, in Document 2 it states ‘In 1950, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, known as the PLA, invaded Tibet to “reunite it with the Chinese Motherland.” ’ An example for the event in 1959 is, when in Document 3 it says, ‘1959 March - Full-scale uprising breaks out in Lhasa.
Rudolfo Alfonso Anaya was born on October 30, 1937, to Rafaelita and Martin Anaya in Pastura, New Mexico, a small village located on the western edge of the Llano Estacado (the Staked Plains). He was the eighth of ten children (three of them from previous marriages by his parents). Rudolfo was born into a generation of Mexican-American families that experienced the culmination of the displacement of an agro-pastoral, self-subsistence economy by a wage-labor market economy. His father tended to withdraw from this process, while his mother, a devout Catholic, encouraged Rudolfo to explore, adapt, and achieve in the enveloping social world of the Anglo American. Early in his life, his family moved from Pastura to Santa Rosa, where he spent his
At first in August of 1945, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Nationalists made a treaty to have the dispute be peaceful, but in 1946, they were both fighting over China once again. The CCP had captured Beijing with the help of the leader Mao Zedong who declared the formation of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Nationalist Jiang Jieshi was then obligated to migrate to Taiwan where he formed his alternative government the Republic of China (ROC). The CCP claimed to be the party of the workers and the peasants meaning they supported their rights and wanted more equality for them. The Nationalist party claimed nationalism, democracy, and people’s livelihood.
Would you persecute the killer of your beloved family member if you had the choice? A mother did and she even forgave him. In Noyan, Iran, is where Samereh Alinejad forgave her son’s killer. In addition to this, she demonstrated an amazing act of mercy and has affected the whole community. My real life example of mercy is when this Iranian mom chooses not to persecute the killer.
On March 18th 1959, on the outskirts of Tibet, my grandfather Lhagyal Kamsang traveled with his father, Baba Chodar and with a group of Tibetans to New Delhi, India after China’s occupation of Tibet. Lhagyal was walking with his father, Baba chodar and with a group of Tibetans who wanted a new life in India. They followed a trail that lead to the border of India, the trail was surrounded with thin towering trees that could touch the clouds and the pathway would often twist as if it was a slithering snake. A delicate white mist would always surround the group of travelers and the gust of wind would provide them a blanket of wind. The group was filled with hopeful people who wanted a change in their lives and were willing to push
Although he agrees that it is beneficial to learn from other traditions, but conversion from their birth culture and tradition will add confusion to their identity. To support this he tells the reader to ask this question to themselves, “Am I attracted to this new tradition because of the essential teachings; or, is it because I find the rituals more fascinating; or, is it because I imagine this new tradition will be less demanding?”(445). If the person still converts after thinking the question through then he thinks it is essential that he does not comment on his previous faith. Throughout the essay Dalai Lama has given the reasons why religion plays an important role to shape the person. Every religion has an essential part to share an enriched diversity.
A Buddha is a spiritual person who recognizes that enlightenment can end the cycle between birth and death as well as bring deliverance from suffering. Buddha went by more than one name such as Shakyamuni Buddha or basically the Buddha. As stated in the article, “The Life of Shakyamuni Buddha”, Buddha real name was known as Gautama Buddha and lived from 566 to 485 BCE in central north India (Berzin, 2007, para. 1).

Another main teaching of his is religious harmony. He recognizes that all religions, although they may be different and practice differently, have the same goals, to produce good people. A third main teaching he practices is showing the Tibetan people hope and trust. To do this is makes sure their culture is still practiced, the language is still used, and all traditions stay the same. In the end, the big picture of the Dalai Lama’s teachings is to be positive and bring peace into everything that is
To this day, Chinese settlers outnumber Tibetans 7 to 1 in their own country. The hate was spread by way of leaders such as Mao Zedong and by the countless rumors of torture, murder, rape and mistreatment throughout Tibet. Though the more immoral treatment has lessened, China still controls and dictates Tibet, preventing them
Budai, meaning ‘cotton sack’ is the representation of the traveling Buddha, who travels the world gathering everyone’s sadness and problems and placing them in his sack. He is the protector of the poor, weak and children and his sack of everlasting food was handed out to those in need. The sack contains many treasures which he distributes freely and represents wealth and the fulfillment of wishes, wealth and good fortune. Budai became known as the god of contentment and abundance. Statues portray him as a chubby, bald man in monks clothing, with a large exposed belly and either wearing or holding a necklace of beads.
Thousands of Buddhist monasteries have already been destroyed and more than 1.2 million Tibetans have been systematically raped, tortured, and murdered since 1949. One-fifth of Tibet 's population. Gone.

Similar to the way that Babur came to power in India, the Manchu put down the uprising and immediately created their own dynasty with the capital in Beijing. The Qing Dynasty, which lasted from 1644 – 1911, would be the last dynasty in 3,500 years of empirical Chinese
In similar fashion to the past, the legal system of China is still deeply flawed, people are routinely abused by the government, and those with different belief systems and philosophies are still being oppressed by the government. By clinging to these ideals, which are shown to have failed, as the Qin dynasty fell in an extremely short time, China is not only condemning its citizens to a life in which they are afraid of the government, it is condemning itself to a repetition of history, to the eventual rebellion of those who are tired of being oppressed. In order to ensure the success of both China as a country and its people, the government must begin to serve the interests of the people, rather than the interests of political

Mao was born on the 26th of December 1893 into a poor peasant family in Shaoshan, in Hunan province, which is a province in central China.
