What type of meditation was Thich Quang Duc practicing when he set himself on fire?

I know it is some form of Buddhist meditation, but which one was he using? Thanks.

  1. I don’t know what type of Buddhist he was, but the last thing he said was, “Homage to the Amitabha Buddha.” So he was probably a Pure Land Buddhist, but he could have been Thien (Vietnamese Zen). If he was Thien, he was probably practicing zazen.

  2. Keeping in mind that I am not Thich Quang Duc, but I would imagine that more than likely he was first using single-pointed mediation, followed by being fully mindful, and perhaps a little yoga or tantra practice as well. Just my 2 cents and NO, please don’t actually try it yourself! (if that is what you were thinking)
