PARASOL
BUDDHISM IN SIKKIM
 
SERNYA 
VASE TIBETAN BUDDHISM IS DIVIDED INTO THE RED AND YELLOW SECTS. THE RED SECT COMPRISES OF THE NYINGMA, KARGYU AND SAKYA LINEAGES AND THE YELLOW SECT CONSISTS OF THE GELUGPA LINEAGE . THE SECTS AND THE LINEAGES ARE DIFFERENTIATED FROM EACH OTHER BY THE RITUALS PERFORMED, MONASTIC DISCIPLINE AND THE FOUNDER. HOWEVER THE DIFFERENCES TEND TO BLUR WITH RITUALS OF ONE LINEAGE OVERLAPPING THE OTHER.
