Tsongkhapa Tsongkhapa lived in the 14th century A.D. in the Amdo province of Tibet . Tsongkhapa was born in Tibet in the middle of the fourteen century and it is said that the tree which overshadowed the house in which he was born had the imprint of a Buddha on its leaves. Tsongkhapa was Northern Buddhist reformer. He was the founder and reformer of Gelugpa sect. He founded the Gelugpa sect which became very popular in Tibet and has remained the most important sect upto the present day. He is regarded as an incarnation of Manjushri who is the embodiment of wisdom. Lord Buddha had prophesied that Sumati would come to Tibet and diffuse his doctrine there. He obtained the ordination of monk hood in his early age and commenced to study Buddha's doctrine. He traveled to central Tibet for higher education on Buddha's teachings. He deeply studied both Sutra and Tantra for many years. Randawa was his chief teacher, from whom he specially learnt Madhyamika philosophy expounded by Nagarjuna . He composed many books on Sutra and Tantra in which he tried to explicate the important and knotted points. He emphasized the doctrine of relativity as taught by Lord Buddha . The void and relativity are the two different faces of the same reality which are the ultimate nature of the phenomena. Dbu Mai Ltava is the main conception of Gelugpa order founded by Tsongkhapa . The wisdom of the emptiness is called the central view or Dbu Mai Ltava . It avoids two extreme views, viz. Nihilism and externalism. Both are the main obstructions in achieving the perfection. These two extreme views can be eradicated through the mediation of Dbu Mai Ltava . The central figure is Tsongkhapa who is flanked by his chief disciples, Gyal Tsab and Khasdup respectively on the right and left. He is in preaching posture. He holds a flower in his right hand upon which is placed a sword which signifies the wisdom to destroy the ignorance. He holds again a lotus flower in his left hand upon which is placed the book of wisdom i.e. Sutra.
