Thích Qu?ng D?c's self immolation
Thich Qu?ng D?c emerged from the car along with two other monks. One placed a cushion on the road while the second took a five-gallon container of petrol from the car. As the marchers formed a circle around him, Thich Qu?ng D?c calmly seated himself in the traditional Buddhist meditative lotus position on the cushion. His colleague emptied the contents of the gasoline container over Thich Qu?ng D?c’s head while he rotated a string of wooden prayer beads and recited a homage to Amitabha Buddha. He then struck a match and dropped it on himself.
Photographer Malcolm Browne took a series of shots, one of which is shown above, another of which won the 1963 World Press Photo of the Year.
The news and images of Thich Qu?ng D?c’s self-immolation spread around the world and was later regarded as a turning point in the Buddhist crisis and the critical point in the collapse of the Di?m regime. President John F. Kennedy, who saw the picture while reading the paper in bed the following morning later remarked that "no news picture in history has generated so much emotion around the world as that one." (He was of course, to feature in some famous photos and footage himself later that year!)
I guess that to many people around the world, the event made them think that if a ‘good man’ like Thich Qu?ng D?c was prepared to demonstrate against President Diem in this way, there must be something genuinely wrong with the government supported by the US government.
Ironically, President Diem’s views about the Buddhists were not entirely without justification. The Viet Cong knew that Diem and his family were Catholic, and often used Buddhist monasteries as cover for their activities.
Hòa thu?ng Thích Qu?ng D?c
The monk was protesting against the persecution of Buddhists by South Vietnam’s Ngo Dinh Di?m administration. Malcolm Browne won a Pulitzer Prize for his iconic photo of the monk’s death, as did David Halberstam for his written account. After his death, his body was re-cremated, but his heart remained intact. This was interpreted as a symbol of compassion and led Buddhists to revere him as a bodhisattva, heightening the impact of his death on the public psyche.
The self-immolation is widely seen as the turning point of the Vietnamese Buddhist crisis which led to the change in regime.
Thich Qu?ng D?c emerged from the car along with two other monks. One placed a cushion on the road while the second opened the trunk and took out a five-gallon gasoline can. As the marchers formed a circle around him, Thich Qu?ng D?c calmly seated himself in the traditional Buddhist meditative lotus position on the cushion. His colleague emptied the contents of the gasoline container over Thich Qu?ng D?c’s head. Thich Qu?ng D?c rotated a string of wooden prayer beads and recited the words "Nam Mo A Di Da Ph?t" ("homage to Amitabha Buddha") before striking a match and dropping it on himself. Flames consumed his robes and flesh, and black oily smoke emanated from his burning body. No one who witnessed the event was unmoved. Yet he himself remained completely motionless during the 10 minute immolation.
