    In Brahmin lineage, each family is supposed to have oneGotra, and one Sutra, meaning that a certain Veda (Śruti) is treasured by this family in way of learning by heart.

    One of the most famous definitions of a sutra in Indian literature is itself a sutra and comes from theVayu Purana:

    alpākṣaraṃ asandigdhaṃ sāravad viśvatomukham
    astobhaṃ anavadyaṃ ca sūtram sūtravido viduḥ

    Of minimal syllabary, unambiguous, pithy, comprehensive,
    continuous, and without flaw: who knows the sūtra knows it to be thus.

    InBuddhism, thesūtrarefers mostly to canonicalscriptures, many of which are regarded as records of the oral teachings ofGautama Buddha. InChinese, these are known as 經 (pinyin:jīng). These teachings are assembled in part of theTripitakawhich is calledSutra Pitaka. There are also some Buddhist texts, such as thePlatform Sutra, that are called sūtras despite being attributed to much later authors.

    In the book "Modern Buddhism",Geshe Kelsang Gyatsodefines sūtra as "The teachings of Buddha that are open to everyone to practice without the need for empowerment. These include Buddha's teachings of the three turnings of thedharma wheel[3].

    Some scholars consider that the Buddhist use ofsūtrais a mis-Sanskritization and that the latter represented Sanskritsūkta, "well spoken", "good news" (as the Buddha himself refers to his speech in his first sermon; compare the original meaning ofGospel), which would also resolve assuttain Pali.[4]The early Buddhist sutras do not present the aphoristic, nearly cryptic nature of the Hindu sutras,[5]even though they also have been designed for mnemonic purposes in an oral tradition. On the contrary, they are most often lengthy, with many repetitions which serve the mnemonic purpose of the audience. They share the character of sermons of "good news" with the Jaina sūtras, whose original name can derive from Sanskritsūkta, but hardly fromsūtra.

    The Pali form of the word,suttais used exclusively to refer to the scriptures of the earlyPali Canon, the only texts recognized byTheravadaBuddhism as style="line-height: 1.5em; list-style-type: none; margin: 0.3em 0px; padding: 0px; list-style-image: none; text-align: left; ">
