Kirti Rinpoche is a religious leader currently residing in Dharamsala, India, and has 40 monasteries under his religious administration including many inside Tibet. A number of the now 100+ Tibetans that have self-immolated in Tibet have been monks or former monks of Kirti monastery. Kirti Rinpoche is visiting the Legatum Institute as part of a tour of a number of European cities, helping to spread the word about this underreported and on-going crisis.
