Karma Kagyü (Tib., kar-ma bkaʾ-brgyud). One of the four main early subschools of Kagyü (bkaʾ.brgyud), founded by Düsum Chempa (Chos ʾdzin dge ʾphel Dus gsum mkhyen pa, 1110–93). Originally identified by Black Hats, made from the hair of dākinīs who embody the good karma of all the buddhas, an early schism led to the Red Hats, with whom much conflict ensued. They contributed to Rimé (ris-med), and have built up a considerable following in the West.
