I was reading the wikipedia article on the Aro Gter lineage, and they mentioned this sutra - although I couldn't find any additional info on-line.
If anyone could provide a link - perhaps even a full translation of this Sutra of the Owl-Headed Dakini, that would be incredible!

If aro gter was not in Tibetan, then it's hard for great master to check it I guess.
They said Dudjom Rinpoche recognised the terma but asked him to keep secret for 15 years. I am wondering what kind of text he showed to Rinpoche, if there was such a thing.
Usually the master who confirms the text needs to sign for the authenity, just like recognising a tulku needs a formal letter and a ceremony.

About CR lama, I am a bit confused. didn't CR lama openly recognised him as a qualified teacher? (of course it's not totally related the authenity of terma, but....)

a teacher that adds confusion, is no teacher at all.

there are many people who have opinions. I don't think many of
these people actually ever met him. Yet they "know." They certainly
haven't met any of the Tibetan Lamas who speak highly of him.
Suffice it to say that in some circles there seems to be some
controversy. Any Lama who accomplishes much, or seems eccentric
has his or her detractors. In the Vajrayana, we have to hold Pure
View and acknowledge that unusual teachings may be suitable for
some people. At the very least we can adopt an agnostic position.
