The burning monk


Resident megalomaniac
Greetings to all curious enough to click on this thread - I may post it to the Buddhist area of the forum ...

I hope you are enjoying your time on the forum today so far.

I was browsing a few lists of famous photos and came upon one black & white from 1963.

Here is the photo and an explanation of why the monk chose to set himself on fire as a protest.

Much more at that site - if you have the time & the inclination!

Enjoy the rest of your browsing
