Sutrasamucchaya (Skt. Sūtrasamuccaya; Tib. མདོ་ཀུན་ལས་བཏུས་པ་, Wyl. mdo kun las btus pa) or Compendium of Sutras — both Nagarjuna and Shantideva composed texts of this name. Nagarjuna's text can be found in the Tibetan Tengyur, whereas Shantideva's text of the same name has been lost.

Nagarjuna's text consists of passages from sixty-eight mainly Mahayana sutras. The selected passages extoll the Mahayana path.[1]
