Tenzin Dolma | 当增卓玛

Tenzin Dolma | 当增卓玛

Tibetan media sources identified the woman as Tenzin Dolma, aged 23 and a resident of Tsenmo Goge village in Rebgong, the county in which most of the recent self-immolations have taken place.

She set herself on fire at about noon local time in the courtyard of a community temple, sources said.

“She died at the scene, since local Tibetans didn’t know immediately about her protest. She left behind her cell phone and rings, and then prepared herself inside the prayer hall by performing certain religious rituals,” one source said.

Tenzin Dolma is survived by her father Bhulo, 50, and her mother Tashi Dolma, 41.

Tenzin Dolma | 当增卓玛 was the 80th(77thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009. She was the 12thfemale self-immolator.

当增卓玛,安多热贡(今青海省黄南藏族自治州同仁县)扎毛乡农民,23岁。
2012年11月15日中午,中共十八大结束之日,当增卓玛将佩戴的护身符、手机和戒指留在家中,去果盖里仓村转经堂煨了桑,吹响了海螺,然后点火自焚,当场牺牲。
她是扎毛乡果盖里仓村人,父亲名叫普洛,50岁;母亲名叫扎西卓玛,41岁;丈夫是一名汉人。
该年11月底,法国《解放报》和法国《新观察家》周刊记者秘密赴同仁,找到了当增卓玛的家,见到了她悲痛的父母。说她的牧民家庭较为富裕,父亲曾是村长,还两次得到过表彰。而她是一个快乐的女孩,在学校里学习过中文,曾同父母一起去拉萨朝圣。她在自焚前曾反复听阿坝歌手格白的歌曲。自焚当日,趁父母外出,用摩托车油箱中的汽油点燃了自己。 她的父亲说女儿的献身对藏民族是有益的。
记者写到,从当增卓玛家堆满如山的礼物中可以看出来她家祭奠的人数不胜数。这些礼物除了许多包茶叶以及尊者达赖喇嘛的照片,还有西藏流亡政府领导人洛桑森格的照片。
