Rice Seedling Sutra (Skt. Śālistamba-sūtra; Tib. སཱ་ལུའི་ལྗང་པའི་མདོ་, Wyl. sA lu'i ljang pa'i mdo) (Toh. 210) — a short sutra of the Mahayana in which the bodhisattva Maitreya explains the meaning of a very brief teaching on dependent arising that the Buddha had given earlier that day while gazing at a rice seedling. In the sutra, the Buddha said "Bhikṣus, whoever sees dependent arising sees the Dharma. Whoever sees the Dharma sees the Buddha." It is these words of the Buddha that Shariputra was requesting Maitreya to explain.
