AbstractIn the Buddhism practised in Japan prior to the time of Kukai it had been maintained that it was possible to become a Buddha only after spending an enormously long period of time repeating the cycle of birth and death; this was known as san-go-jo-butsu ('becoming a Buddha after in three kalpas') or ryaku-ko-jo-butsu ('becoming a Buddha after passing through countless kalpas'). In the present work Kukai expounds the idea that it is possible to become a Buddha in this very body (soku-shin-jo-butsu). This work is thus an elucidation from the standpoint of the Shingon School of the theory and practice leading to this 'attainment of buddhahood in this very body.'

When one considers the influence this treatise had on later Japanese Buddhism,it is valid to say it is philosophically an extremely important work.
