Nichiren Daishonin states in “Reply to Priest Takahashi”:

The Hinayana sutras, the Mahayana sutras as well as the Lotus Sutra—all these teachings can no longer work as medicine to treat the people’s illnesses. Only the words of these sutras are still in existence. Their illnesses will be too serious while these medicines are too ineffective. At that time, Bodhisattva Jōgyō will make his advent in order to bestow upon all people in the entire world the five characters of Myo-Ho-Ren-Ge-Kyo.

宗祖日莲大圣人于《高桥入道殿御返事》曰:

小乘经、大乘经及法华经,虽有文字,然不可为众生之病之药。所谓病重药轻也。
其時,上行菩萨出現,以妙法莲华经之五字,授予一阎浮提之一切众生。
