Tsonkhapa a Thibetan reformer and monk, was born A.D. 1355, in the district of Amdo. He strictly prohibited ordinary tricks and pretended miracles of charlatanism, and united and reconciled the dialectical and mystical schools of modern Buddhism. He also published most comprehensive works. His innovations were never universally acknowledged. His followers, however, called Geluckpa, or Galdaupa, are the most numerous, and wear a yellow garb, the others having chosen red. SEE THIBET.
