no i think its quite general.
you can read the three principal aspects of the path. there the second aspect is renunciation. and all the three apsects are seen as the most important qualities of mahayana/sutrayana practitioners.
i know its not a sutra but its a work of Je Tsongkapa.
im sure buddha talks about renunciation somewhere and you could see that the theravadins study also sutras and mostly they are monks and even lay persons in theravada place high importance on renuncation. and theravada is also sutrayana.
and i would conclude that Je Tsongkapas wisdom comes from the sutras of buddha just like all authentic dharma texts come from the words of Buddha.
hope this helps a little , sorry i dont have any references for sutras. but im sure theyre there.
If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....
In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….
