Tsongkhapa (1357–1419) is a well-known Tibetan religious philosopher. A devout monastic, Tsongkhapa took on the difficult task of locating and studying all of the Indian Buddhist classics in Tibet in his day. In his iconic form, wearing a tall yellow hat, he is the center of the Gelugpa sect that was dominant in Tibet until the Chinese takeover in 1951 and whose de facto leader is the Dalai Lama.
