Watanabe Baiyū 渡辺楳雄 describes the background of the 文殊師利所說摩訶般若波羅蜜經 T232 as follows: T232 is recorded as having been translated by *Mandra 曼陀羅 in 503 CE, the year when he arrived in China. As Mandra did not know Chinese then, *Saṅghapāla(?) 僧伽婆羅 worked with him in the translation process. As such, catalogues point out that the meaning of the text is not clearly presented in this T232 故所出経文句隠質, but, according to Watanabe, T232 is written much more clearly than Saṅghapāla’s own version of the same text, the 文殊師利所説般若波羅蜜經 T233.
