For reference #6, there is a mention of epilepsy and immolation on the relevant page of the cited text, but it is not available for review. As well, the citation needs the name of the author of the study (a prison doctor) to establish veracity. A prison doctor, a clinician, seems like an unlikely source of information on this point, but I left the citation there for correction. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:25, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
In the opera Gotterdamerung, the main character of the opera burned herself to the fire. Does this count as the article mentioned?
On October 4, 2013 a self-immolation took place in the United States on the National Mall in Washington, DC in view of the United States Capitol Building. This should be added to the page.

Self-immolation does not mean specifically to burn oneself. It means to sacrifice one's own life. Why is there an entire article to describe the incorrect meaning of a word? -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:55, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
I went and read the sections of the Lotus Sutra regarding the Medicine King and I can find no mention of him self immolating. I will be changing this article to reflect that if an accurate citation is not produced. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:53, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
The german article has a list of incidents worwide: https://de.www.popflock.com/learn?s=Selbstverbrennung . Why not in this englisch version? -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:51, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
