Ōno discusses a “colophon to the Mahāsaṃnipāta [compiled] after critically scrutinising [the text]” 大集經校正後序 (originally found in K but missing from SYM, today carried at the end of the first fascile of the text in T, T397 [XIII] 8b3-c28), which criticises “six faults 六失” in the structure of the Mahāsaṃnipāta 大集經, based on the views of Zhisheng. The first of these supposed faults is that the text presents the Yingluo pin 瓔珞品 T397(1) as a separate text from the Tuoluoni zizaiwang pusa pin 陀羅尼自在王菩薩品 T397(2) [both texts are listed with the title Tathāgatamahākarunā-nirdeśa in HBGR --- MR]. However, Ōno argues that the form in which the “two” texts are separated is older, and a version of the Mahāsaṃnipāta without the separate Yinluo pin, which Zhisheng saw, was a later variation.
