Nyangkar Tashi | 宁尕扎西

Info: Twenty-four year old Nyangkar Tashi set fire to himself while Tibetans were gathering to pray for a young Tibetan mother, Tamdrin Tso, who self-immolated and died on November 7 in Dowa township in Rebkong county, Malho (Chinese: Huangnan) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Qinghai Province (the Tibetan area of Amdo).

It was after the official visit, at around 3:15 p.m. on November 12 at Kadmar Thang in Dowa, that Nyangkar Tashi set fire to himself, calling for the long life of the Dalai Lama and a free Tibet. The same sources said: “At that time, there were lot of people there who were praying and paying their respects to Tamdrin Tso and Jinpa Gyatso. People did not allow Chinese police to take Nyangkar Tashi’s remains but brought his corpse back to his village, Drotsang in Dowa.”

Nyangkar Tashi | 宁尕扎西 was the 77th(74thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

安多热贡(今青海省黄南藏族自治州同仁县)多哇乡牧民,24岁。
2012年11月12日下午三点多,中共十八大期间,宁尕扎西在多哇乡交隆务村改麻塘(11月7日丹珍措自焚处),呼喊“祈愿达赖喇嘛永久住世!”“西藏要自由”,当场牺牲。为了不让军警抢走他的遗体,在场的民众持续守护,并将遗体送回家中,由僧人主持了超度祈福法会。
他是多哇乡交隆务村牧民。父亲名叫扎西南加,47岁;母亲名叫堪卓措;妻子名叫珠姆措,23岁。
自焚前,他亲笔写下遗书。这份遗书写在一张商店里卖的那种常见的信笺上,最下面还印了一行中文:“无论做什么事情,只要努力,就没有不成功的。”遗书并被放在镜框里供奉起来,在镜框前还供放着几个黄色的苹果,饱含着亲人和乡亲的敬意与哀伤。
新华社英文网发布简讯承认发生这起自焚。
中国中央电视台2013年2月28日播的官方宣传片称宁尕扎西是“娘尕扎西”,称他自焚身亡后,普化及“雪传统文化服务团”的“头目” 多杰仁青组织藏人去他家中慰问、捐款等。已被捕的多杰仁青等藏人目前尚未被判刑。

遗言:

“致嘉瓦仁波切和班禅仁波切以及六百万藏人:西藏要自由、要独立。释放班禅仁波切,让嘉瓦仁波切返回家园!我自焚抗议中国政府!父亲扎西南杰为主的人,不要为我悲痛,随佛法,行善事,我的希望是,六百万藏人要学习母语、讲母语,穿藏服,团结一致。”
