Xuanzang (600-664 CE) translated the Bodhisattva piṭaka Sūtra. And it is in this report for the first time we meet a translator that for which a fore-runner of a Ratnakūṭa collection existed - in some form. Prior to this time, for several hundred years, the wordRatnakūṭa” referred only to a single sutra called the Kāśyapaparivarta Sūtra. The other sutras may have existed, but as independent texts.

Bodhiruchi, between 706 CE. - 713 CE, assembled the Ratnakūṭa collection we know today as containing 49 sutras.

nirdesha = “explanation”
