Gelug

Translated from Tibetan as “Followers of the Virtuous Path”, Gelug was established in the 14th century by Tsongkhapa, widely regarded as on of Tibet’s greatest Buddhist masters.

Foundations of Gelug: emphasis on monks and nuns to follow the vinaya, the monastic code of ethical conduct that the Buddha had taught.

The Gelug school presents the path to enlightenment as a series of gradual steps in a system called Lamrim or “Stages of the Path”. and emphasizes “the three principle aspects of the path”: renunciation of worldly attachments, the altruistic determination to achieve enlightenment for others, and a correct understanding of the nature of reality.
