The Saá¹ƒdhinirmocanasÅ«tra is a relatively late (4th-cent. ce[?]) Indian MahÄyÄna work consisting of ten chapters in which the Buddha explains apparently contradictory statements attributed to him in earlier discourses. It contains a number of doctrines that appear for the first time in Indic literature and that later became influential in India, Tibet, and East Asia. It is particularly influential in the YogÄcÄra-VijÃ±ÄnavÄda school, for which it is the most important scriptural source.
