Sangdag Tsering | 桑德才让

Info: A 24-year old Tibetan, Sangdag Tsering, set fire to himself and died on November 17 in a township in Tsekhog in Rebkong, Qinghai. He was the second Tibetan to self-immolate on November 17, following the death of mother of two Chagmo Kyi.

Sangdang Tsering self-immolated at around 7 p.m. on November 17 outside a government building in Dokar Mo township in Tsekhog (Chinese: Zeku/Zekog) county, which neighbors Rebkong (Chinese: Tongren), in Malho (Chinese: Huangnan) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Qinghai (the Tibetan area of Amdo). Security personnel at the scene attempted to douse the flames with water but failed.

Sangdang Tsering was married with a three-year old son. A Tibetan in exile said that Sangdag Tsering frequently spoke about the Dalai Lama not being allowed to be in Tibet, that Tibetans have no rights, and that the Panchen Lama is still in prison, referring to the young man recognised by the Dalai Lama as the 11th Panchen Lama who disappeared into Chinese custody at the age of six in 1995.

Sangdag Tsering | 桑德才让 was the 82th(79thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

桑德才让,安多泽库(今青海省黄南藏族自治州泽库县)多禾茂乡牧民,24岁。
2012年11月17日傍晚约7点在多禾茂乡政府前自焚,当场牺牲。而这天上午,当局在多禾茂乡政府召开大会,要求当地僧俗民众不得去自焚藏人的家中悼念,并警告说,若有僧人去,将关闭所属寺院。就在当天傍晚,桑德才让以身浴火,表达抗议。
当地两座寺院的僧人和民众将他的遗体送往寺院附近火化,并举行了隆重的超度祈福法会,几千人参加。
他出生于多禾茂乡牧民家庭。父亲名叫曲杨,51岁;母亲名叫曼拉措,49岁,;妻子名叫彭毛措,24岁;有一个3岁的男孩,名叫丹杰。
他在自焚前七天,请朋友在自己的照片上写下遗言: “我们是雪狮的儿子,红脸藏人的后代,请铭记雪山的尊严。”
11月底,多禾茂乡牧民果贝被捕,理由是桑德才让自焚前曾见过他。之后情况不明。

遗言:

“西藏没有自由,尊者达赖喇嘛被禁止返回西藏,班禅喇嘛被监禁在狱中,有无数个西藏英雄相继自焚牺牲,因此,自己不想活在这个世上,活得也没有意义。”
