Transcript of ABCs of Tibet

The ABCs of Tibet by: Sarah Gibbons A B C D E F G H I J K M N L p o Q R S T U V W X Y Z is for art The same way that America was founded on the Christian faith, Tibet was based off of the Buddhist religion. Because of this, self-expression like art has the Buddhist religion incorporated into it. The basics of Buddhism are to be happy and free oneself from un-happy or un-clean thoughts. Tibetans express these beliefs in songs, poems, and quotes, which is they’re most common form of art. They do have physical art like paintings, woodcarvings, etc., but this type of art is usually used to express literary art (Art of Dharma). For example, ‘The Epic of King Gesar’ is considered the greatest work of Tibetan literature and art. It is currently one of the main icons in the cultural art of Tibet, and was created by Tibetans in the 1500s and modified over the years. In early times, the epic was passed on orally, but as time went by it began to be recorded. The epic remains in some handwritten copies, carvings, paintings, murals, songs, dances, play, and woodcuts (“GESAR”). A sculpture of King Gesar A sculpture of Buddah in a
worship center is for buildings One important and well known building in Tibet is the Ramoche monastery. A monastery is a house or place of residence occupied by a community of people such as monks living in seclusion under religious vows. This particular monastery is 4000 square meters!

As head of the government the Dalai Lama signs paperwork for the country as well as being thier religious leader. The country is currently struggeling to break free from Chinese rule. For many decades, Tibet was under the rule of China untill it broke free to become it's own country. The Dalai Lama Being a mainly Buddhism country, the symbol of Buddah sparks pride in Tibetans. The Buddhist religion is incoorperated into the everyday lives of people in Tibet as much as possible. In fact, the leader of Tibet (the Dalai Lama) is also the main religious leader. When Tibetans see the Dalai Lama national pride is sparked as well.

Buddhism is the most common in India mainly because of when King Songtsen Gampo and his wife showed scriptures and statues of Buddha to the court in the 7th century, the same time Tibet was founded. As Buddhism started to become more and more well known across Tibet the previous religion, the Bon religion, began to fade. When China took over Tibet during the Chinese cultural revolution of 1966 many nuns and monks where killed, along with temples being destroyed (Religion of Tibet).Tibetans were forced to quit their religion and return to their previous one. However, Tibet already has a distinct form of Buddhism. This distinct form was created by incorporating aspects of the Bon religion, the previous religion of Tibet, into Buddhism. Like many other religions, even the distinct Tibet Buddhism is divided into different sects. The first is called Nyingmapa, and basically believes that one’s mind is pure and by rejecting negative outside influences, one can become like Buddha himself. The second Is Kahdampa. Kahdampa, although still Buddhist, is based on the teachings of Atisha, a religious leader from 1042. The third sect is Gelupa, or also called the order of Dalai Lama. They wear the Yellow Sect and yellow hats, the same attire as the Dalai Lama (Buddhism in Tibet China). "Buddhism in Tibet China, Introduction, Sects."

Families in America have a strong sense of equality, so that both boys and girls receive full education, and are raised in mostly the same way. However, in Tibet boys and girls still have different roles. In urban areas, girls and boys are both schooled equally, whereas in rural areas boys schooling has a higher percentage than girls. For example, one year in the Athri Village School only had 5 girls, but 23 boys. Yet another difference between the average American family and the average Tibetan family is that couples marry at an extremely young age. The average age for girls in 18 or 19 and the average for boys is 23 or 24. In some parts, spouses are still picked by the parents, but as Tibet becomes more like the west it becomes uncommon. Divorce is uncommon in Tibet as well, but still occasionally happens. In major cities in China, families are restricted to only one child. Although Tibet is still a part of China, Tibetan family are allowed to have as many children as they want (Women in Kham and Tibet) In 200 the average number of members of a family was 4.77 or 5. Of this statistic, more larger families where in rural areas rather than urban (Tibet). Contrast, By. "Women in Kham and Tibet." Kham Aid Foundation.

The economy in Tibet is one of the weaker economies, leaving 210,000 people living in poverty. The economy in Tibet is in direct correlation with China, who’s economy was severely low in 1993. In 1993 relief programs began and ended up helping 480,000 Tibetans out of poverty in only 6 years. After the efforts of these programs, the poverty in Tibet dropped from 480,000 to 210,000. The poverty still in Tibet, is mainly concentrated in three areas. The first is the located in the northern foothills of the Himalayas, an area where farms and ranch lands meet (Tibet Economy – Economy of Tibet). This poverty is mainly a result of the small amount of rainfall and short growing season in Tibet. While Tibet may be poor in some regards, they also have many natural resources like gold, copper, and large salt reserves (Tibet: Economy – Infoplease.com).
The main language in Tibet is Tibetan, but many dialects are spoken across the region (AsianInfo.com). Tibetan is mainly classified as Tibeto- Burman, but sometimes it can be extremely difficult to distinguish between true Tubetan and the dialects of different areas. True Tibetan resembles Burmese, a major language of Asia. These two languages are spoken in the Himalayas and highlands of Southeast Asia (Travel Tours Photo Gallery). The Tibetan language is not only spoken by those who acutally live in Tibet. The main distribution of Western Archaia Tibetan is in Pakistan and other parts of India. Northern Tibetan is spoken in Nigeria and Nangchen (Tibetan Dialects). Most languages tend to break out across the map as people migrate to new places. Another example of this is the Chinese language. Although almost the entire country of Tibet speaks Tibetan in most commercial areas of Tibet, Mandarin Chinese, Chinas official language, is commonly used (AsainInfo.com).

Urban and rural areas are different on very different aspects. In rural areas the culture is more old fashion, giving girls the more 'girl-like' jobs of cleaning and cooking. BOys will usually work in the field and do other man labor. In urban citys the work load is mostly equal and unbiased. Tibetans in urban citys also get the same education. Contrast, By.

Soon Tibet was flourishing. In the mid 1600 the Mongols sent the first Dalai Lama, a wise monk, to be the political leader of Tibet. By the 18th century China had taken control of Tibet during the Chinese cultural revolution of 1966. However, because of the hostile way China's government acted to the religion of Tibet, Tibetans soon rebeled. In 1911 Tibet began the procces of ridding the military officials stationed in Tibet and the Chinese rule. By 1913 a meeting was held for China and Tibet came to an agreement to regard Tibet as an independent region, but China didn't agree. Instead, Tibet and China ended up batteling.
