Madhyama Āgama; ("Middle-length Discourses," Zhōng Ahánjīng 中阿含經, Taishō 26) corresponds to the Majjhima Nikāya of the Theravada school.


A complete translation of the Madhyama Āgama of the Sarvāstivāda school was done by Saṃghadeva (僧伽提婆) in the Eastern Jin dynasty (東晉) in 397-398 CE.

The Madhyama Āgama of the Sarvāstivāda school contains 222 sūtras, in contrast to the 152 suttas in the Pāli Majjhima Nikāya.

Portions of the Sarvāstivāda Madhyama Āgama also survive in Tibetan translation.
