The Vinayasutra (Skt. vinayasūtra, Tib. འདུལ་བའི་མདོ་, Wyl. 'dul ba'i mdo) by Gunaprabha consists of a root text on Vinaya and its autocommentary. The Vinayasutra is included among the so-called "thirteen great texts", which form the core of the curriculum in most shedras and on which Khenpo Shenga provided commentaries.
