Sakaino maintains that KYL 開元釋敎錄 is highly unreliable in listing a “new Sukhāvatīvyha” 新無量壽經 ascribed to *Dharmamitra 曇摩蜜多, since it is unlikely that even Fei Changfang, who was active nearly one hundred fifty years after *Dharmamitra, did not know of such a text at all, if it existed, and yet was then known to Zhisheng when he compiled KYL around two hundred fifty-sixty years after *Dharmamitra. Sakaino mentions that Zhisheng cites the Zhenji si catalogue 眞寂寺錄 as the source in listing the 新無量壽經. No details are known about this catalogue, but Sakaino conjectures that it probably was a catalogue compiled after the time of LDSBJ and possessed by the temple.
