Pagdru Kagyü or Phagmo Drupa (Wyl. phag mo gru pa) — one of the four major schools of the Dakpo Kagyü founded by Phagmodrupa Dorje Gyalpo (1110-1170) in the twelfth century. The school later splintered into eight sub-schools, founded by Phagmodrupa's eight main disciples. Today, only three of these sub-schools are alive or remain as separate schools: the Drikung Kagyü, Drukpa Kagyü and Taklung Kagyü schools. The Pagdru Kagyü school ruled over Tibet during the fourteenth century and part of the fifteenth century.
