Pointing to information conveyed in CSZJJ and KYL, Ōno inclines to the belief that the *Vinaya-viniścaya 決定毘尼經 T325 (= Upāli-paripr̥cchā) dates to the E. Jin, probably to the latter part of that period.

Ōno also points out that the , ascribed to “the Dunhuang Trepiṭaka” 燉煌三藏 [usually taken to mean Dharmarakṣa --- MR] was widely used in other scriptures. For example, it is reused as the Upāliparipṛcchā 優婆離會 T310(24) in the Ratnakūṭa of Bodhiruci. It also became the first "introduction" chapter 第一序品 of the Pusa shan jie jing 菩薩善戒經 in nine juan, T1582, one section 一節 of which is in turn quoted in the Dasheng xiuxing pusa xing men zhu jing yaoji 大乗修行菩薩行門諸經要集 T847 ascribed to Zhiyan 智嚴 (of the Tang).

The rite for contrition before the thirty-five Buddhas 三十五佛懺悔法 of T325 was valued particularly highly in China, as it was an important source in the development of the Guan Xukongzang pusa jing 觀虛空藏菩薩經 T409. Furthermore, two versions of a text entitled Sanshiwu Fo ming jing 三十五佛名經 were produced on the basis of the 三十五佛懺悔法:

1) A scripture recorded in the section of anonymous extant scriptures of CSZJJ as the Sanshiwu Fo ming jing in one fascicle, 三十五佛名經一巻 出決定毘尼經, which is an excerpt scripture of the names of the Buddhas from Śākyamuni 釈迦牟尼佛 to Lianhuaguang shanzhu shaluoshu wang Fo 蓮華光善住沙羅樹王佛. Ōno points out that this text exists in the Hou zai za lu 後載雜錄 of the Korean and Song editions of the Guan Xukongzang pusa jing 觀虛空藏菩薩經 (Ōno states that he made this point already in the fourth section of Chapter One, Part One of the same book).

2) the extant Sanshiwu Fo ming lichan wen 三十五佛名禮懺文 T326 in one juan ascribed to Amoghavajra 不空. The note 出烏波離所問經 added to the title is an alternate title 異名 used in India [sic!]. Ōno states that he will discuss this text later in the same book (Chapter 16 of Part Two).
