Lobsang Namgyal | 洛桑朗杰

February 13: In confirmed reports, a Tibetan monk set himself on fire on February 3 in the Ngaba region of eastern Tibet protesting China’s continued occupation of Tibet.

Lobsang Namgyal, 37, a monk of the Kirti Monastery has become the 100th known Tibetan to self-immolate under China’s rule since the wave began in 2009.

Following immense security clampdown in the region, the news of Lobsang Namgyal’s fiery protest reached exile on February 13, a day being observed by Tibetan exiles all over the world as the 100th year of His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama’s Tibetan Proclamation of Independence.

Lobsang Namgyal | 洛桑朗杰 was the 105th(102thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

洛桑朗杰,安多阿坝(今四川省阿坝藏族羌族自治州阿坝县)格尔登寺僧人。
2013年2月3日早晨约6点,洛桑朗杰在若尔盖县公安局附近,呼喊“祈愿尊者达赖喇嘛永久住世”,当场牺牲。军警带走了他的遗体,后来把他的骨灰交给家人。
洛桑朗杰曾于2012年9月失踪两周,后来才知是被阿坝县公安局拘押,遭到虐待;获释后一直被警察骚扰。他自焚牺牲后,他的兄弟洛萨扎西曾遭拘押,其他亲友的手机被检查并被封口。由于当局严密封锁消息,所以他的自焚直到十天后才传出。
洛桑朗杰出生于阿坝县贾洛乡牧民家庭,父亲名叫嘎廓,母亲名叫嘎吉,家中共八个兄妹,而他自幼出家格尔登寺为僧,佛学成绩优异,被寺院作为“格西”培养。

遗言:

“祈愿尊者达赖喇嘛永久住世”
