Abridged Chronology

Since that time onward, the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin has been transmitted down through the ages in the form of the Heritage of the Entity of the Law, entrusted to one and only one legitimate successor, from one High Priest to the next.

 In turn each of the successive High Priests has carried out the tranmission of the Law in the exact same manner as one drop of water in a vessel transferred to another vessel, and has continued to burn brightly the "torch of the Law," unbroken and uninterrupted to this day, which has been inherited by the 68th High Priest Nichinyo Shonin.
