During his extensive travels in search of materials for the Śatapitaka, Prof. Dr. Raghu Vira undertook a journey to the Mongolian People's Republic (M.P.R.) at the invitation of the Committee of Sciences, Ulanbator. Inter alia, he discovered a hitherto unkown edition of the Tibetan Kanjur which was revised and printed in Urga during the sway of the eighth and last Jibcundampa (rje-btsun-dam-pa). Prof. Raghu Vira was told that only two copies were printed. The xylographic blocks are no longer extant. One copy is in the State Library at Ulanbator, and the other is now on the shelves of the International Academy of Indian Culture, New Delhi. It was presented to Prof. Dr. Raghu Vira in December 1955, by His Excellency Mr. U. Tsedenbal, the Prime Minister of the M.P.R.
