Tsongkhapa, a Tibetan religious philosopher, central to Gelugpa (dge lugs pa) sect that ruled Tibet until the Chinese takeover in 1951. The historical Tsongkhapa flourished in the period immediately following the final redaction of the Buddhist canon in Tibetan translation. He presents a Middle Way (madhyamaka) philosophy between knowledge and praxis, based on the works of the Indian philosopher Ngrjuna (3rd – 4th century AD), and strongly influenced by the Indo-Tibetan ­Buddhist logico-epistemological tradition (prama) founded by the Indian epistemologists Dignga and Dharmakrti (5th – 7th century AD).
