  Kagyu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Kagyu (Wylie transliteration: Bka'-brgyud) school, also known as the "Oral Lineage" and "the Spotless Practice Lineage" school, is one of four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, the other three being Nyingma (Rnying-ma), Sakya (Sa-skya), and Gelug (Dge-lugs).
The Kagyu school traces its origins to the teachings of the Indian mystics Tilopa (988-1089) and Naropa (1016-1100), whose lineage was transmitted in Tibet by the great translator Marpa (1012-1097).
Important practices in all kagyu schools are the tantric practices of chakrasamvara and vajravarahi.

The Kagyu tradition however, belongs to what is known as the New Schools (sarma), which were established in Tibet in the tenth century during what is known as the 'later spread', chidar in Tibetan.
