As some of the vows’ text (愿文) are interconnected, and can be read as implied in various parts of the sūtra text (经文), some of the listed accomplishment text (成就文) are approximations, with more cross-references in other texts, such as the Immeasurable Life Sūtra itself, where the vows are fully listed and further explained by Śākyamuni Buddha. These interconnections help us to better understand the teachings collectively, while increasing our confidence with their unified coherence.
