The Lalitavistara on SuttaCentral

So every now and then, I google a really random search term in SuttaCentral to see what I get.

I googled bodhicitta, and I randomly found out that SuttaCentral hosts a romanized Sanskrit Lalitavistaranāmamahāyānasūtra.

It isn’t listed with any parallels, does it have any with earlier texts? Is it just something that accidentally ended up being hosted for whatever reason?

“We do include some long Sanskrit texts such as Divyavadana and Lalitavistara, which are primarily later, but contain small passages of EBT material.
Sectarian affiliation is not a consideration. For example, the Prajnaparamita contains substantial passages parallel to the Satipatthana Suttas, so that could be included.”
