Citing the Baochang catalogue 寶唱錄, KYL records that the title Pusa jingjie fenxun famen jing 菩薩境界奮迅法門經 [this is the form of the title in KYL (see below); Sakaino writes 菩薩境界奮迅法問經] attributed to *Buddhaśānta is an alternate title for the Sazhe Niganzi jing 薩遮尼乾子經 [Sakaino writes 薩遮尼犍子經]. Sakaino claims that this report is another example of the confusions concerning *Buddhaśānta and Bodhiruci.

[NOTE: It is difficult to determine which text these assertions and records might refer to, and Sakaino’s possible confusion about the title above might reflect this problem. In T alone, we see the following extant texts with possibly related titles:

師子奮迅菩薩所問經 T1357 (anon.);
奮迅王問經 T421 (ascribed to *Gautama Prajñāruci);
大薩遮尼乾子所說經 T272 (ascribed to Bodhiruci), which contains such apparently related (and unique) phrase as (菩薩行方便)境界奮迅法門.

Pending resolution of these problems, this note is associated with all three of these T titles.

Cf. KYL T2154 [LV] 540c21-22, where Zhisheng gives a note to a title 大薩遮尼乾子所說經十卷, ascribed to Bodhiruci, reading: 或加受記無所說字或七卷或八卷一名菩薩境界奮迅法門經正光元年於洛陽為司州牧汝南王於第出第二譯與神通變化經同本 --- MR.]
