The purpose of this paper is to discuss the formation of bodhisattva thought in the vows of the Dà āmítuó jīng, focusing on vows 5-7. This discussion is approached from four perspectives. First, I begin with a brief treatment of the special terms in the Dà āmítuó jīng. Second, I discuss the formation of the 7th vow of the Dà āmítuó jīng by a comparative study between this vow and its equivalent in other versions. Third, I analyze the formation of the 6th vow of the Dà āmítuó jīng. Finally, I discuss the formation of the 5th vow of the Dà āmítuó jīng. bodhisattva thought do good deeds cultivate the bodhisattva path to perfection; ascetic precepts rebirth in Amitabha's Land.
