The Sutra of the Question of Subahu (Skt. Subāhuparipṛcchāsutra; Tib. ལག་བཟངས་ཀྱིས་ཞུས་པའི་མདོ།, Wyl. lag bzangs kyis zhus pa’i mdo) — in the Veṇuvana near Rajagriha, the Buddha teaches this sutra in response to a single question put to him by the bodhisattva Subahu: what are the qualities a bodhisattva should have in order to progress to perfect awakening? The Buddha then describes how a bodhisattvas should train in the six paramitas.[1]


This sutra is the twenty-sixth (Toh 70) among forty-nine sutras included in the Heap of Jewels collection in the Tibetan Kangyur.
