The Geluk (dge lugs) tradition – also known as the “New Kadam” (bka' gdams gsar) and the “Gandenpa” (dga’ ldan pa) - originated with the renowned scholar Tsongkhapa (tsong kha pa, 1357-1419) and his immediate disciples. The Geluk eventually came to be the basis of the theocratic state in Central Tibet founded by the Fifth Dalai Lama with Mongolian support. The most prominent of the sect's characteristically large monasteries include Sera (se ra), Drepung ('bras spungs), Ganden (dga' ldan), and Trashi Lhünpo (bkra shis lhun po).
