Theravada:
The Brahmajala Sutta is the first of 34 suttas in the Digha Nikaya (the Long Discourses of the Buddha). The name comes from brahma (perfect wisdom) and jala (net which embraced all views). The sutta is also called Atthajala (Net of Essence), Dhammajala, (Net of the Dhamma), Ditthijala (Net of Views), Anuttarasangama Vijaya (Incomparable Victory in Battle).

Mahayana:
The Brahmajala Sutra, meaning, The Discourse on the Net of Brahma is the Sanskrit title of a text of the Mahayana Buddhist canon.[1] It is not related to the Brahmajala Sutta of the Theravada Buddhist Pali Canon. This sutra introduces Vairocana Buddha and his relation to Shakyamuni Buddha and states the 10 major precepts for Bodhisattvas and the 48 minor precepts one should follow to advance along the path.
