Kagyu

(tib.: ka gyu) Name means stream of oral teaching. The Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism stems from the teachings of Marpa Chokyi Lodoe (1012-1099) and Khyungpo Nyaljor (978-1079). This school is also known as the Black hats. This is the second oldest of the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism (nyingma, kagyu, sakya, gelug).
