Jiacai demonstrated that the transformed lands exist in Amida's Pure Land in order that ordinary people may be able to attain birth there. Concerning this, three points may be made:
1. In those days, Buddhists paid attention to the Buddhist path and salvation for ordinary people.
2. Those who believe in Maitreya encouraged people to attain birth in Maitreya's Pure Land.
3. There were some disputes between those who believed in Maitreya and those who believed in Amida Buddha over the attainment of birth by ordinary people.
It can be said that the disputes with those who belonged to the Faxiang school over the attainment of birth by ordinary people had great influence on Jiacai's view on the Buddha-bodies and lands.
