  Schisms, murder, and hungry ghosts in Shangra-La.(internal conflicts in Tibetan Buddhist sect) - HighBeam Encyclopedia
The heads of the Gelugpa school were known as Dalai Lama and were believed each to be the reincarnation of his predecessor.
Yet, given that the Nyingma sect was closer to the tantricism whose excessive influence Gelugpa's founder thought was detrimental to Buddhism, allegiance to Nyingma could have been a basis for legitimate concern or a rallying point for political opponents of the Great Fifth.
The Gelugpa purists' view (the purity of which Dorje Shugden is bound to protect) considers Dzogchen a delusive clinging to a type of self-existence and a backsliding to Hindu ideas that Buddhism was supposed to refute.

 Gelugpa
The Gelugpa, sometimes simply referred to as the "Yellow Hat" school, are rooted in the Kadampa tradition and in that school's reformation under Tsongkapa (1357-1419), a teacher of Sakya background who preferred a strict, monastic discipline and who considred the Kadampa monks not yet virtuous enough.

He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who traveled widely to extend Gelugpa influence, and became abbot of the largest Gelugpa monastery, Drepung, which from this time on was closely associated with the Dalai Lamas.
His death marked the start of a period of persecution of the Gelugpa by the Kagyupa (Red Hat) order, which was powerful in western and eastern Tibet.

 Life of Zanabazar: First Bogd Gegen of Mongolia
But while it is easy to imagine Jonangpa and Gelugpa monks engaging in fierce courtyard debates over these teachings it is difficult to believe that philosophical differences only were behind the forceful takeover of the Phunksoling Monastery in 1642 by the Dalai Lama-led Gelugpa sect and the subsequent suppression of the Jonangpa school.
The monastery thereafter became a Gelugpa establishment with the new name of Ganden Puntsokling, and presumably the monks were converted to the Gelugpa sect.
Thus it was the Gelugpa monastery of Ganden Puntsokling that Zanabazar visited in 1650 when he set out to visit places connected with the lives of his previous incarnations.

 Life of Zanabazar: First Bogd Gegen of Mongolia
Thus his first course of action was to establish a new Gelugpa monastery near the confluence of the Tuul and Selbi rivers, in the large basin surrounded by the four mountains now called Chingeltei Uul, Bayanzurkh Uul, Songino Uul, and Bogd Khan Uul.
Thus is would appear-keeping in mind that most subsequent histories were written by Gelugpa monks-that Mongolia was spared the sectarian strife which had plagued Tibet in the 1630s and early 1640s and resulted in the forceful suppression of the Jonangpa sect to which Zanabazar's previous incarnation belonged.
Shunzhi, or his Qing advisors, had sent a delegation to Lhasa to invite the Dalai Lama to Beijing back on 1650, but the Great Fifth was initially reluctant to go, fearing both the smallpox then raging in China and the political implications of appearing as a supplicant in the Qing court.

Statement from HH office also states that the organizing party of the expo - although branding itself as a Gelugpa centre, is not recognized as such by HH the Dalai Lama nor HH the Ganden Trisur Rinpoche (the Official Head Emeritus of the Gelugpa Tradition).
Therefore, labelling of itself as a "Gelugpa" centre is inaccurate and misleading.
The Dalai Lama's office further clarifies that its position is clear and consistent with regard to the worship of "dolgyal-shugden" which it strongly considers as "worship of the unenlightened evil spirit".
