The Chu-Hokekyo is a work in 10 rolls in which Nichiren (1222-1282) added bibliographic reference data in the blank spaces of Lotus Sutra. Copies of the Chu-Hokekyo now known can be thought to have been made in the later years of Nichiren's life. Many examples of bibliographic notes in Nichiren's own hand are extant. Nichiren created the Chu-Hokekyo by putting his notes in order. However, earlier versions of the work in progress no longer exist. I therefore investigate the relation between the completed Chu-Hokekyo and the notes upon which it was based.
