Does someone know the origin of this quote? Is it from the sutras, the Mahayana sutras or shastras...?--Sébastien (talk) 15:05, 11 September 2017 (CEST)

In the book Buddhist Hermeneutics edited by Donald Lopez, it says in the Introduction that they are to be found in the Catuhprayisaranasutra, which I think is a Mahayana Sutra.- Tsondru.

Hi, difficult question, first i found something in Tsongkhapa's true eloquence (in central philosophy of tibet), which then referred to the first of the five stages of the yogacharyabhumi (strangely called facts of the stages by Thurman). so i looked in the boddhisattva bhumi, https://books.google.com.np/books?id=WrXXCwAAQBAJ&q=four+reliances#v=snippet&q=four%20reliances&f=false But I don't have this book and so I cannot look clearly

correction, a TBRC search was more profitable, it's mentioned in a bunch of sutras. will see more tmr. --Hankop (talk) 16:41, 13 September 2017 (CEST)
