It is a very short sutra and the most common recited by Buddhist followers of the world. Schilling von Canstadt (1786-1837) was a renowned orientalist and pioneer of telegraphy. During travels in the 1830's to Mongolia and Siberia he made great collections of Tibetan, Mongolian and Chinese books and manuscripts which were placed at the Asiatic Museum in St. Petersburg. The duplicates Schilling donated to the Institut de France, of which the Tibetan material was later catalogued by J. Bacot. See J. Bacot, "La collection tibétaine Schilling von Canstadt à la bibliothèque de l'Institut" (Journal Asiatique, tome CCIV, 1924, pp. 341-48).
