班丹曲措,康道坞(今四川省甘孜藏族自治州道孚县)铜佛山觉姆庙16尼师,女,35岁。
2011年11月3日下午1时许,班丹曲措在道孚县政府对面的滨河路自焚,呼喊“祈愿达赖喇嘛永久住世!”、“西藏要自由!”当场牺牲。11月6日,上万名藏人聚集在道孚县灵雀寺悼念班丹曲措,举行隆重法会和火葬仪式,而县城布满军警。
她是在道孚县僧人次旺诺布自焚的同一地点自焚的,有藏人拍下她自焚时的震撼片断,还拍摄了藏人僧俗的悼念片断,并将视频传出西藏,发布在网络和媒体上。
不及3分钟的视频显示:在道孚街头,班丹曲措全身裹着熊熊火焰,直立着,像燃烧的火炬。人们尖叫着,在人们的尖叫声中,她被火焰击倒在地,随即又站起。一位穿藏装的女子展开一条洁白的哈达,走向被火焰吞没的班丹曲措,抛献哈达……
许许多多的阿尼们奔走着,高声呼喊着:“祈愿达赖喇嘛永久住世”、“西藏需要自由”。在痛苦的喊声中,可以听到“博让赞”。
接着是某个夜里。成千上万的藏人举着蜡烛围聚在道孚最大的寺院——这是今年8月15日自焚牺牲的29岁僧人次旺诺布所属的寺院,也是将阿尼班丹曲措的遗体收留的寺院——男女老少的藏人排着长队,向牺牲者敬献哈达。而寺院僧众,在大殿诵经修法,以藏传佛教的方式护送以身献祭的班丹曲措。
但是,在最后的镜头,出现了一队军警从一道坡上走过,而坡下是仍在为阿尼班丹曲措修法的僧人们。还出现了军车、警车,车身上写着“武警巡逻”……
她是境内藏人自焚中的第二位女性。出生于道孚县格西乡铜佛山村农民家庭。
新华社2011年11月4日有报道,并称道孚县官员指这是“达赖集团策划、煽动、支持而发生的极端事件”。

遗言:

“祈愿达赖喇嘛永久住世!”、“西藏要自由!”
