 A Short Biography of Tsangyang Gyatso, The VI. Dalai Lama
In October 1697, Tsangyang Gyatso was enthroned with grand ceremony as the Sixth Dalai Lama on the golden throne in the Potala Palace, attended by the officials of the Government, monks from the three monasteries, Mongol princes, representatives of the K'ang Hsi emperor and the local people.
Whether Tsangyang Gyatso is the true reincarnation of the Fifth Dalai Lama was a question decided for the Tibetans of his time by the Nechung oracle whom the monks and the people consulted before his final arrests by Lhazang's troops in 1706.
Since Tsangyang Gyatso was born and brought up in a Nyingma family advanced in tantric practices, it was perhaps unwise on the part of Desi Sangay Gyatso to force the strict Gelug training on the young Tsangyang, who proved to be an uncomfortable and controversial blend of the two.

 Sonam Gyatso, 3rd Dalai Lama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sonam Gyatso (Tibetan: བསོད་ནམས་རྒྱ་མཚོ་; Wylie: Bsod-nams Rgya-mtsho; ZWPY: Soinam Gyaco) (1543 – 1588) was the first officially recognized Dalai Lama by the Mongolians, who gave this teacher the name Dalai Lama, a combination of the Mongolian Dalai meaning "ocean" and the Tibetan honorific lama, "teacher".
Sonam Gyatso, a monk of the Gelugpa (Yellow Hat) school of Buddhism, was responsible for finding a foreign patron for Gelugpa institutions.
The alliance with the Mongols would later prove instrumental in establishing the Gelukpa as the rulers of Tibet during the reign of the Great Fifth Dalai Lama.
