It may be difficult to imagine how the Chinese revolution, the Buddha, and a princess shaped the path of Tibetan Buddhism into the Hawaiian islands, particularly in the island of Kauai. This essay will illustrate how my experience at a Buddhist burial ground in Kauai had its roots in Beijing, Lhasa, and Lumbini. I will argue that the presence of Tibetan Buddhism on the island of Kauai was primarily driven by the Communist revolution in China in 1949 and their reannexation of Tibet in 1959. This paper will show how the Buddhism came to Tibet from India on the Middle Ages and moved to the United States in the 1950s and 1960s. The story of how Tibetan Buddhism got to Hawaii is followed by an analytical description of a Tibetan Buddhist burial mound in Kauai.

To exercise this right Britain sent an exploration team into the Buddhist Country. This mission was disbanded when the Tibetans resisted and denied entrance on the grounds that they did not, and do not recognise Chinese rule. The Tibetans refused to have dealings with Britain because they claimed that they were dealing with China. One way in which the Chinese feel they should control Tibet is the claim that they ( the two counties ) have always been intricately interrelated. But this is completely incorrect.
To introduce this subject consideration will first be given to the history of Buddhism and how this impacted on the society of China, using the class structure and Emperor Worship to distinguish Buddhism from other religions present. Buddhism came to China in a slow gradual process. Confucianism and Taoism where the main philosophy’s practiced. Buddhism emerged through Taoist scholars who kindly translated the texts of Buddha, hence the slow process of this religion. Buddhism was recognized to coincide with Taoism and ambiguous texts complemented each philosophy.
By comparing and contrasting the two stories, "The Journey to The West" and "Tartuffe", this essay will attempt to compare and contrast the function of the endings in these two works. "The Journey to The West" is a story contains one hundred chapters explaining how a Tripitaka, a monk, with three disciplines travel to India to retrieve the holy sculptures and seek for enlightenment, while "Tartuffe" is a short play about Orgon, head of a family, being manipulate by Tartuffe, a religious hypocrite, and Orgon was enlightened at the end. This essay will further show how both stories shared similar endings, while at the same time highlighting their unique differences. Enlightenment might be able to explain through text or words, but being able to receive it or truly understand it, we must learn in it our own path. “The Journey to The West" and "Tartuffe", were both created in two different time of period and different region, but yet both stories shared similar ending and moral which is receiving enlightenment in first hand.
Another thing they had to agree was to grant amnesty to all the Chinese subordinates that collaborated with England in the wars. Later on, England, France, Russia, and USA, would have the right to establish small embassies in Pekin, which was a closed city at that time. All the foreign ships would have the right to navigate freely the Yangtze River as well. (Zhang, 2010) The British wanted to increase the west influence in China, and shake it up from its ideal that it was the most important country in the world. The objective was to make China recognize the equality among other countries, such as England, France, Russia and USA.
Eric Arthur Blair, known as George Orwell, was born in 1903 near Nepal in the Indian Village Moithari.

The role of the Dalai Lama is one of a spiritual leader and sign of unity among Tibetans and especially practicing Buddhists throughout the world. This role has been a tough one to fill, as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama was exiled from his home in Tibet by the Chinese government over 50 years ago. He has been deemed a political exile do to the fact that he wishes for Tibet and all the practicing monks to be free from Chinese rule. Following his exile the Dalai Lama has remained a symbol of strength and unity among Buddhist practitioners, he worked from his residence in India to attempt to improve conditions between the Chinese government and Tibetans. The Chinese has instituted a policy that all reincarnations must be filed and approved by the government and not within the Buddhist which has always been the traditions.
China has large population base, and the average education level is low. But that not mean Chinese don’t have judgment to distinguish the fact and rumors. All in all, Chinese government should accept foreign social networking like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. To forbid those networking cannot stop the rumors radically, however, it would lose more useful information than those rumors. Everyone have his or her rights to know what happened and what already has happened in their owe country.
