A small kind of curiosa! Sometimes Tibetans seem to have used Sanskrit texts inscribed on the walls of temples to edit the Tibetan translation of those pertinent scriptures. See, for example, Si-tu-paṇ-chen’s bKa’ ’gyur dkar chag (p. 431). The text is question here is of what is known as the “Heart Sūtra.” It would be nice to have some more examples.
