two transfer documents ［二箇相承書］ ( nika-sōjō-sho): Two documents written by Nichiren (1222–1282) naming Nikkō as his legitimate successor: (1) The Minobu Transfer Document, also known as The Document for Entrusting the Law that Nichiren Propagated throughout His Life, written at Minobu in the ninth month of 1282. In this document, Nichiren transfers the entirety of his teachings to Nikkō and entrusts him with leadership in propagating them. (2) The Ikegami Transfer Document, also known as The Document for Entrusting Minobu-san, written at the residence of Ikegami Munenaka on the thirteenth day of the tenth month, 1282, the day Nichiren died. It appoints Nikkō as the chief priest of Minobu-san Kuon-ji temple and states that all Nichiren’s disciples should follow Nikkō. See also Ikegami Transfer Document; Minobu Transfer Document.
