The Sutra on the Eightfold Auspiciousnesses (Skt. maṅgalāṣṭakasūtra; Tib. བཀྲ་ཤིས་བརྒྱད་པའི་མདོ།, Wyl. bkra shis brgyad pa'i mdo, or more fully Skt. ārya maṃgalāṣṭaka nāma mahāyāna sūtra; Wyl. 'phags pa bkra shis brgyad pa zhes bya ba theg pa chen po'i mdo) — a sutra expounded by Buddha Shakyamuni while residing in Vaishali in the Mango Grove, on the request of Rabtsal from the Licchavis. The Buddha explains about eight buddha fields that lie in the east, the tathagatas who dwell there, and the benefits acquired by reciting their names.

This is the sutra Mipham Rinpoche based his Verses of the Eight Noble Auspicious Ones on.
