丁增朋措在自焚前留下四份遗书——

遗书之三:
噶玛寺的同胞兄弟们:
想到堪布和僧人们的处境,我们坐在这里担忧有什么用?起来吧!
利养恭敬八法与荣誉,如野鹿远远躲避猎人。
向世间法无法欺骗之,大彻大悟的佛祖顶礼!
充满痛苦的丁増朋措

遗书之四:
想到整个西藏和今年噶玛寺的苦难,我无法继续活下去空等。

Tenzin Phuntsog | 丁増朋措 was the 15th(13thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

丁増朋措,康昌都(今西藏自治区昌都地区昌都县)嘎玛区农民,原为噶玛寺僧人,后还俗成家,41岁。
2011年12月1日,丁増朋措在嘎玛区政府前自焚,呼喊“我的上师和噶玛寺堪布被抓,正遭受折磨,我无法坐视不管!”“祈求达赖喇嘛护佑!”重伤,被军警强行带走,于12月6日在昌都县医院牺牲,遗体未交给家人。
他遗下妻子卓玛和两个儿子。长子原本在嘎玛寺出家为僧。西藏自治区当局竭力掩盖他自焚身亡的事实,严令禁止当地藏人对外透露实情,必须谎称他还健在。甚至将丁增朋措的妻子和两个儿子强行迁出嘎玛乡,迁往昌都县一个叫“果若”的地方。
至今西藏自治区当局掩盖这起自焚,对外声称“目前西藏没有自焚事件,总体上是非常平稳的……”。

遗言:

遗书之一: 信封上写着:请张贴到噶玛寺的大门上 信中内容: 面对继承和弘扬纯正无误的藏传佛教之噶玛寺堪布洛珠绕色、朗色索朗和全体僧侣遭受抓捕、殴打——我宁愿为我们噶玛寺的堪布和僧侣们的痛苦去赴死。 持尊严者丁増朋措

遗书之二: 同胞们,勿要失望!勿要怯懦!自他交换的道友们,请为持佛法的两位堪布和僧人们想一想,我们怎能相信一个不允许我们信仰宗教的政府? 丁増朋措
