Ōno states that the Chugaizhang pusa suowen jing 除蓋障菩薩所問經 (T489) is an alternate translation of the Ratnamegha-sūtra. T489 has a larger number of juan, but its contents are the same as those of T658. According to Ōno, in terms of structure and vocabulary/phraseology 形相文辭, T489 is closest to T660, among other Chinese versions of the text. Ōno points out that the Jingyou lu lüechu 景祐錄略出 records a Chugaizhang pusa suowen jing 除蓋障菩薩所問經 as translated by *Dharmapāla 法護 and Weijing 惟淨 between Tianlong 天龍 3 (1019 CE) and Tiansheng 天聖 1 (1023 CE) (363-364). [In the Taishō, T489 is ascribed to *Dharmapāla alone.]
