I don't think this is a mythical document, but only a rarely uploaded document. Here are some references I found to it in Googlesearch:

Zennist, I hope you won't think this impertinent, but referring to your post two down from here, with reference to the Catusparisat Sutra: you refer to this document constantly in connection with your insistence about how all the other Buddhists in America today have it wrong about what the Buddha said about ultimate reality. I wanted to point out that a search for this mythical document on Google finds virtually NOTHING about it, aside from your own quotations and references. Indeed, on-line Theravada sites which purport to contain the complete discourses of the Buddha seem to have never heard of it. I've searched, replacing the "C" with a "K" and a "Kh" and still: bupkis. So what gives? Where is this mythical document that you site so fervently, and how do we get to lay hands on the whole thing? Just curious...
