The Interpretation of the Buddha Land is a commentary on the Buddhabhūmi-sūtra. It takes as its subject the final stages of the transition from bodhisattva to buddha. The bodhisattva’s progress is divided into various stages, the tenth and final one of which is called the ‘“stage of a buddha” (buddhabhūmi).
In structure, The Interpretation of the Buddha Land presents its contents in three sections, a format which was widely adopted and served as a model for later commentaries on other sūtras.
