By way of conclusion, this chapter takes up two major reasons why the Ōjōyōshū proved extremely influential. The first is because it showed how people can gain enlightenment during an age in which it was believed that the spiritual capacities of human beings had degenerated to the point where it is virtually impossible to attain buddhahood. The second reason for its influence is because it presents a comprehensive and systematic typology of the nenbutsu.
