In The Sutra “Declaring What Is Supreme” (Skt. Agraprajñaptisutra; Tib. མཆོག་ཏུ་གདགས་པའི་མདོ།, Wyl. mchog tu gdags pa’i mdo) the Buddha, while spending the rainy season at the Bamboo Grove in Rajagriha, teaches his sangha of shravakas that the Buddha is supreme among all beings, the Dharma of being free of attachment is supreme among all dharmas, and the Sangha is supreme among all communities and groups. Those who have faith in these three will be reborn as supreme among gods or humans.[1]
