Lobsang Gendun | 洛桑格登

Lobsang Gendun, 29, a monk, at the Penag Monastery, self-immolated in Golog Pema region of eastern Tibet at around 7:45 pm (local time) Monday, December 3. He succumbed to his injuries at the site of his protest.

According to Tsangyang Gyatso, an exiled Tibetan with contacts in the region, Lobsang Gendun called a friend of his, moments before burning himself to death, and left a message of unity to all Tibetans.

“I am right now preparing to self-immolate,” Lobsang Gendun told his friend (name not revealed). “I have already doused my body with petrol. I am only left with the battery water to drink before I burn myself. Although I wanted to leave a note, but for my poor handwriting, I could not. So, I am calling you,” Lobsang Gendun told his friend. “My hope is for Tibetans from all the three provinces of Tibet to be united, have solidarity with each other, and not to indulge in internal quarrels. Our aspirations will be fulfilled if we all do this.”

Lobsang Gendun | 洛桑格登 was the 98th(95thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

2012年12月3日晚7点多,洛桑格登在班玛县莲花街三岔路口点火自焚,双手合十,呼喊“藏人们请团结!”、“不要内斗!”,前行约300米后倒下,当场牺牲。军警欲强行夺走僧人遗体,被现场众多藏人抢回,并将遗体送往距离县城约7公里的班纳合寺,安放在尊者达赖喇嘛法像前,敬献哈达,举行了超度祈福法会。
他在自焚前给班纳合寺僧人打电话,留下遗言。 他出身于有11口人的牧民家庭,父亲名叫果洛•罗阔,母亲名叫萨果德旺,大哥叫才琼。
安多果洛(今青海省果洛藏族自治州)班玛县灯塔乡人瓦秀•多周被捕,被指控涉嫌这起自焚事件。当地名人拉雷•曲杰到班玛县公安局为瓦秀•多周说情,却与第二天被捕。目前,他们被关押在果洛州一监狱,其他情况不明。

遗言:

“我就要点火自焚,身上已倒满了油,接下来喝了电瓶油后就点火。本来我想写遗书,但我的字体很差,所以就给你打电话留下遗言。我有一个希望,那就是西藏三区民众要团结一致,不要为各种纠纷而内斗,只有这样我们的希望才会实现。”
