Dorje Lungdup | 多吉楞珠

On Sunday, November 4, 2012, Dorje Lhundup, a father of two children and an artist of traditional Thangka religious paintings has died after setting himself on fire in the latest self-immolation protesting Chinese rule, and residents are afraid to leave their homes because large numbers of security forces are in the area, the Tibetan government-in-exile and an activist group said Sunday.

Dorje Lhundup, age 25, set fire to himself in Rebgong (Ch: Tongren), a monastery town in western China’s Qinghai province, said the exile government based in Dharamshala, India, and London-based Free Tibet.

It said thousands of people reportedly gathered to say prayers for him, and that people decided to cremate his body soon after to prevent authorities from interfering.

Dorje Lungdup | 多吉楞珠 was the 69th(66thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

多吉楞珠,安多热贡(今青海省黄南藏族自治州同仁县)人,唐卡画师,25岁。
2012年11月4日上午10点多,多吉楞珠在同仁县夏琼北路交叉路口自焚,呼喊“西藏要自由”、“让尊者达赖喇嘛返回西藏”、“我的心愿已圆”,当场牺牲。
僧俗民众守护他的遗体不让军警抢走,隆务寺僧众还手牵手,将尊者达赖喇嘛法像护送至多吉楞珠遗体前以示护佑,人们敬献哈达并祈祷,随后在隆务寺后山东加拉(高僧火葬之地)举办了隆重的火葬仪式。多吉伦珠的父亲周太加在火葬仪式上说:“我的儿子是为他人的福祉利益献出生命,现已达成他的这一心愿,因此大家无需过度伤心,并希望民众不要再掀起其他事件。”另一名长者也向民众公开说明:自焚藏人多杰楞珠与妻子及家人从未有过任何矛盾,家境也不贫困,而他一向热爱西藏民族,尊崇尊者达赖喇嘛,现为西藏政教事业献出了生命,家人不会为此特别伤心。
多吉楞珠是年都乎乡录合相村人,父亲名叫周太加,50岁;母亲名叫夏吾央姆,44岁;妻子名叫央姆措,26岁;儿子贡桑多吉4岁,小女儿丁增卓玛2岁。全家靠务农维持生活,经济条件中等。
2013年1月2日,同仁县兰彩乡叶什姜寺的僧人亚佩和扎央被当地警方带走,扎央因患病获释,而42岁的亚佩于3月初被判刑1年3个月。亚佩是多吉楞珠的舅舅。当时在火葬仪式上,他手捧多吉楞珠的遗像,扎央手捧尊者达赖喇嘛法像。
