Yet another question about restricted texts

Post by Coëmgenu » Tue Dec 12, 2017 6:19 pm

Is there such a thing as a definitive listing of 'restricted texts'?

For instance, is the Vairocanābhisaṃbodhisūtra a restricted text because it is sometimes called the Mahāvairocanatantra?
नस्वातो नापिपरतो नद्वाभ्यां नाप्यहेतुतः उत्पन्ना जातु विद्यन्ते भावाः क्वचन केचन
There absolutely are no things, nowhere and none, that arise anew, neither out of themselves, nor out of non-self, nor out of both, nor at random.
सर्वं तथ्यं न वा तथ्यं तथ्यं चातथ्यम् एव च नैवातथ्यं नैव तथ्यम् एतद् बुद्धानुशासनम्
All is so, or all is not so, both so and not so, neither so nor not so. This is the Buddha's teaching.

一切實非實亦實亦非實
非實非非實是名諸佛法
