The difference between the Gelug school and the other three main schools of Tibetan Buddhism is profound. The root of the difference is based on J. Tsongkhapa’s unique interpretation of the two truths based mainly on the work of Chandrakirti. Therefore the Gelug school’s unique view on the two truths results in a unique view of Buddhahood , i.e., the Buddha bodies (Gelug posit 4 / others posit 3) and the parameters related to ultimate reality.
