In this short sutra, The Seal of Dharma (Skt. Dharmamudrā; Tib. ཆོས་ཀྱི་ཕྱག་རྒྱ།, Wyl. chos kyi phyag rgya), Shakyamuni Buddha addresses the nature of monastic ordination according to the perspective of the Great Vehicle and how going forth from the life of a householder can be said to have the qualities of being noble and supramundane. Following the Buddha’s teaching, the two prominent monks Shariputra and Subhuti engage in a brief discussion on this same topic.[1]


The Tibetan translation of this sutra can be found in the General Sutra section of the Tibetan Dergé Kangyur, Toh 203.
