Tamdrin Kyab | 丹知杰

Tamdrin Kyab | 丹知杰

Info: Tamdrin Kyab, 23-years old [Tsering Woeser reported him as 26-years old], was formerly a monk at Shitsang monastery. He disrobed in 2007 to help his nomadic family.

Tamdrin Kyab set fire to himself at around 10 p.m. near the Luchu river. According to exile Tibetan sources, local people did not know about his self-immolation because it happened at night, and it was only in the morning that people found his body and took it back to his home. Local Tibetans and monks from Shitsang monastery gathered at his home to pray and offer their condolences.

 

Tamdrin Kyab | 丹知杰 was the 86th(83thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

丹知杰,安多碌曲(今甘肃省甘南藏族自治州碌曲县)牧民,曾是西仓寺僧人,23岁。
2012年11月22日晚上,丹知杰默默地在碌曲河边自焚,当场牺牲,他的遗体直到次日早晨才被藏人发现,并抬回他家里,附近的僧侣为他举行了超度祈福法会。
他是碌曲县玛艾镇花格村人,2006年在西仓寺出家为僧,法名加杨格登,2007年还俗。他的父亲名叫才让扎西,已故;母亲名叫卓玛措,47岁;他有三个兄弟,大哥名叫斗改杰,二哥名叫加杨扎巴,是西仓寺僧人,弟弟名叫久西杰。
据悉每当发生藏人自焚抗议事件时,丹知杰就对好友们表示:“自己也想选择自焚表达抗议,如果尊者达赖喇嘛不能返回西藏,自己活着也没有任何意义。”这应该是他的遗言。
