Nichiren Daishonin states in “Wu-lung and I-lung”:

The benefit of all the other sutras is uncertain, because they teach that one must first make good causes and only then can one become a Buddha at some later time. The Lotus Sutra is completely different.  A hand which takes it up immediately attains enlightenment, and a mouth which chants it instantly enters Buddhahood, just as the moon is reflected in the water the moment it appears from behind the eastern mountains, or as a sound and its echo arise simultaneously.
宗祖日莲大圣人“上野尼御前御返事”曰:

一切经之功德乃说先作善根而后成佛。是故不定也。所谓法华经乃以手取,其手即成佛,以口唱,其口即成佛也。譬如天月出於东之山头,其时水中即浮其影,如音与声响之同时也。
