I would appreciate to get more info about this sutra to double check with what i collect from from chinese sources.

1. The chinese sources claim that this sutra is one of the very rare one that was translated from the chinese canon into the tibetan kangyur. Does it exists in the Tibetan canon? I only know that SoDhargye Khenpo has mentioned this sutra his teaching on Diamond Sutra.

2. It claims that the tibetan prayer wheel that contains this sutra is supreme. Is it true? I only know that prayer wheel usually contains the mani mantras.

3. HH Mokcha Rinpoche of kathok monastery recited it daily for the past 40 years.

4. It is very popular in Tibet for the purpose of reciting for the deceased. is it true?

I asked all these questions because this sutra allegedly disappeared from the chinese canon one thousand year ago and was only miraculously rediscovered in the last one hundred years or so..

I manage to do more googling and have most of the questions above answered. Most importantly, it is indeed a genuine sutra that is popularly held in Tibet.

The chinese words isn't good in the actual pronunciation of the Dharani compared to English. It will be helpful to many if anybody can help with the Dharani in this sutra. I think there are only two Dharani. Karma Chagme has written a short sadhana based on this sutra that contains this Dharani ans it looks like this

Rejoice and pleasantly surprised that a Chinese mahayana group in Malaysia is practicing this uncommon (but common in tibetan buddhism) sutra on a monthly basis.

Found this you tube about a Karma Kagyu's Rinpoche talking about this sutra and about his father (also a tulku) devotion to this practice.

So far, I can't find any English translation for this sutra.

This sutra disappeared from the Chinese tripitaka 1000 years ago only to have fragments of it recollected back in recent years. The last missing piece was recovered in a Dun Huang cave. It was then crossed checked with the tibetan version and found to be the same sutra. this sutra contains everything from a powerful confession practice, essence of Prajnaparamita, Avatamsaka sutra, Lotus sutra, previous lives of Buddha Sakyamuni, a method to liberate the deceased and more.... The chinese and tibetan copy is easy to get in the internet and I am getting a copy.

I confirmed what was said in the chinese sources true (at least it is a genuine sutra recognised in Tibetan Buddhism) because i found this clip of HH Mokcha Rinpoche giving the lung for the Dharani. Share with all of you. However, his speed is fast and I would appreciate if someone who can read tibetan helps with the pronunciation of this Dharani
