In addressing the fact that "Jodo Buddhism has long been misunderstood by many people as being something little different from Christianity," Shojun Bando describes "the character of Jodo Buddhism in contrast with the Zen way of attaining the Buddhist principle, sūnyatā [emptiness, voidness]." The essay covers the relationship between Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism, the etymology of the term "Jodo," principles of Zen and Jodo, and the author discusses the "too superficial observation" that Zen belongs to the Self-Power School and Jodo to the Other-Power School, which he finds misleading and not useful in distinguishing the two forms of Buddhism.

The "Nembutsu" has, as the author states, the dual significance of “thinking of, or remembering the Buddha” and “pronouncing the Name of the Buddha, especially of Amida Buddha.…” Bando goes on to state that “according to Shinran’s perspective, it is not the age nor the nature of man as such that degenerates with the passage of time, but the consciousness of man’s abysmal decadence that has been both successively revealed and deepened thanks to the teachers of the Pure Land doctrine.” The author thus traces the significance of this mantra both in itself and within the historical context of the ages of Buddhism.
