1. Homes contain many families inside them. Clothing is loose with simple colors. Transportation is generally done on foot or horseback. Food is almost entirely vegan.

2. The environment of Tibet is rough. Travelers dress heavily to fight the cold. Because Tibet is on a plateau, the air is thin and the wind is strong. There is not very much vegetation due to the rough climate.

3. The test consisted of presenting two of a number of items and allowing the boy to select one of them. If the boy selects each item correctly, he is chosen as the new Dalai Lama incarnation.

4. The role of Kundun is to remain on Earth instead of going to Nirvana so that he/she may help others gain enlightenment.

5. The significance of the Dalai Lamas birthplace is that it was a bordertown between Tibet and China.

6. The foreshadowing of the quote is that the Dalai Lama refuses to fight and flees after Lhasa (where the quote was spoken) is captured.

7. Tibetan Buddhist funerals consist of cutting up the bodies and throwing them off the cliffs so that the birds can eat their remains. This is because the soil in Tibet is too rough to dig deep enough to bury a person as in most other traditions.

8. The Chinese government used propaganda claiming that Tibet needed help in modernizing to make the invasion look good.

9. Tibets first response to the invasion was resistance against Communist reorganization. When the Chinese cracked down on the Tibetans, the Dalai Lama met with Chairman Mao. When the meeting did nothing, the Tibetan people organized into guerrila efforts to violently strike at the Chinese military.

10. China finishes the invasion by forcing the Dalai Lama into exile. With their superior numbers, weaponry, and training, the Chinese military had no trouble cracking down on any Tibetan resistance.

11. The Dalai Lama faces a lot of danger while fleeing because the path to India means going through Chinese-occupied areas and rough terrain in a small group.

12. Friction can easily be spotted between the Chinese and Tibetans in the scenes where the Tibetans are angry and crowding together while the Chinese try to push their way through.

13. The meeting between Chairman Mao and the Dalai Lama is one filled with disagreement; the Dalai Lama tries to convince Mao that Tibet does not need help in modernizing, but Mao feels that Tibet belongs to China and that the Tibetan people are inferior. Mao refuses to allow Tibet to remain independent.

14. Maos statement that religion is poison is one based on the belief that religion is the cause of much social friction, confusion, and suffering in society.

15. The advice given to the Dalai Lama means that non-violence breeds cooperation between two groups when they can come to an agreement, but it can also be used to flee or simply refuse to do as one is told when they cant.

16. The Dalai Lama is compelled to leave Tibet for India at the advice and pleading of his family and advisers.

17. The trip is long and treacherous because he has to travel through barren and/or Chinese-occupied areas of Tibet in order to reach India. The Dalai Lama eventually collapses and receives visions. Eventually, they reach a small passage in India and are safe.
