- Notes on authorship
- Though the colophon attributes this text to rnal 'byor pa dpal mi bskyod rdo rje, which has led scholars to believe that the text was written by yu mo mi bskyod rdo rje, Cyrus Stearns has argued, in Luminous Lives, that the text was actually written by kun spangs chen po (Kun spangs thugs rje brtson 'grus), who was often referred to as mi bskyod rdo rje as well. Kun spangs pa went by many names, including: thugs rje brtson 'grus, Kun spangs chen po, Kun tu bzang po, and Dpal Mi bskyod rdo je. The text could not have been by yu mo mi bskyod rdo rje, as he is from the 11th century, prior to the arrival of Śavaripa's text in Tibetan, which was brought to Tibet by Vibhuticandra (who had received it from Śavaripa himself in Kathmandu) and translated it himself in the 13th century.

Information about Unicode Tibetan and the digitization of this text
As the only available unicode Tibetan text at the time, Nitartha International's version of the Paro Edition of the gdams ngag mdzod is provided here. However, note that it has not been thoroughly edited and that there may also be mistakes introduced through the conversion process. Eventually we will provide a fully edited version of the entire Shechen Edition, entered and edited multiple times by Pulahari Monastery in Nepal, but as of fall 2017 that project has not been finished. Note that the folio numbers that appear throughout were added by Nitartha Input Center at the time of input.
