The Sautrāntika school of Buddhism split from the Sarvāstivādins sometime between 50 BCE and c. 100 CE. The Sautrāntikas spurned the Abhidharma literature in favor of the original sutras of the canon; thus their name. The used the concept of an āśraya (substrate, refuge) where the Pudgalavādins and the Vātsiputrīya school posited a pudgala, and where mainstream Indian philosophy typically referred to an ātman. Some of their theories were utilized by the Yogācāra school.
