The Sūtra of the Wheel of Dharma (Skt. Dharmacakrasūtra, Tib. ཆོས་ཀྱི་འཁོར་ལོའི་མདོ།, Wyl. chos kyi ’khor lo’i mdo) is found in the General Sūtra (mdo sde) section of the Tibetan Kangyur (Toh. 337).

According to all of the Buddhist traditions, this sūtra is the first teaching the Buddha gave, "turning the wheel of dharma" to explain his awakened insight to others. Here, the Buddha explains the four noble truths to his five former spiritual companions.
