This school is one of the six main schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He is also the head monk of Tibet (BBC, 2006). Six million Tibetan Buddhists look to the Dalai lama for spiritual guidance (Valley, 2008). He is referred to as ‘His holiness’ by westerners as a loose translation (O'Brien, 2017).

To some, the Mongols may be barbaric. If you really study them, though, you will see that the Mongols were a perfect balance between being civilized, and barbaric. This, is what I believe is what helped them gain, and maintain power. The Mongols were by far the most powerful people in history, with Genghis Khan being the greatest conqueror to ever live. According to information from many maps, Alexander the great conquered 2,180,000 square miles.
He died a traitor to his country and he was not remembered very well with the British. He was trying to fix his legacy because the line of Benedict Arnold has not had a very good reputation throughout the years, but he only worsened his family reputation. His betrayal is known among most citizens of the US and his name is scarcely mentioned anywhere. He was not treated fairly by some Americans, but his response to being treated that way was unacceptable. If he perished at the Battle of Saratoga, he would have been known as one of America’s bravest heroes.
This quote shows how Grendel was punished by God for murdering family just as Cain did to Abel. Murder of your own kin was one of the worst crimes that you could commit and I think this monster was created to deter this crime from happening. The story goes on to state “The shadow of death hunted in the darkness/ stalked Hrothgar’s warriors…” (“from Beowulf.” ln. 74-78).

Reverend John Hale is horribly guilty of this trait in the first act. showing up after the accusations to appease the people. Finally able to use his studies of witchcraft, and armed with his heavy “authoritative” books, he professes “Here is all the invisible world, caught, defined, and calculated. In these books the Devil stands stripped of all his brute disguises. Here are all your familiar spirits—your incubi and succubi; your witches that go by land, by air, and by sea; your wizards of the night and of the day.
This is similar to the government in Fahrenheit 451. On page thirty-one of the novel, Montag asks Captain Beatty what happened to a man whose library they had “fixed,” and the Captain says, “They took him screaming off to the asylum…Any man’s insane who thinks he can fool the government and us.” The government in Fahrenheit 451 is powerful and strict just like the government in “Harrison
When IT awakes from the slumber it takes, it causes a catastrophic event to occur. In 1957, a great flood occurred in the town of Derry, which signaled the beginning of IT’s reign of terror. After a little boy was murdered, the boy’s brother enlisted the help of his friends to beat the monster. The way to kill the monster was through a battle of wits and wills, titled the Ritual of Chüd. In the children’s young age, they believed silver was the only way to kill a monster.
For example,when the ghost of King Hamlet secretly reveals to Hamlet what happened to how he died,the ghost said,”that snake poured a vial of henbane poison into my ear”(Shakespeare 65). This behavior displayed pure evil and treachery. When the ghost boldly tells Hamlet about the poison Hamlet is in shock and surprised and tells him that the snake that killed him was his uncle who took his crown. This led Hamlet to make sure that he pays for taking everything from him. In addition, when Claudius killed Hamlet’s father while he was living in peace,the ghost said,”He cut me off in the middle of a sinful life”(Shakespeare 65).
