Of the three types of transmissions, only one is correct (ours)

Nichiren Shoshu teaches the specific and general transmission as a vertical [specific] line from Nichiren to Bodhisattva Jogyo (Nichiren) to high priest to high priest and a horizontal [general] line from high priest to believer.

SGI teaches that the transmission is a pyramid with Daisaku Ikeda at the top, the leaders in the middle, and the general members at the base. 

The Lotus Sutra and Nichiren teach that the specific transmission of Namu Myoho is from Shakyamuni Buddha of the Juryo Chapter of the Lotus Sutra to Nichiren and the general transmission is a sphere (infinite lines emanating in all directions from the single point)
