Nyangchag Bum | 宁吉本

Twenty-year old Nyangchag Bum, the oldest of three brothers in his family, self-immolated and died early in the evening of November 12 in Dowa township, Rebkong. Local people took his corpse to the monastery and prayed there. According to Tibetans in exile, “A few thousand people gathered, saying long life prayers for the Dalai Lama and chanting the Mani mantra [associated with the Dalai Lama].”

Consistent with a pattern observed in other Tibetan self-immolations, Nyangchag Bum was cremated at an area used only for monks, although he was a layperson.

Nyangchag Bum | 宁吉本 was the 78th(75thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.
