[Buddha-l] Reading sutra's without understanding them

some forms of Buddhism consider the mere reading of sutra's as karmically
beneficial (as the Lotus sutra mentions a couple of times). As I remember,
understanding what is being read is not that all important, just doing it
serves enough. Do you know which forms of Buddhism see this 'numb' reading
as beneficial and is it really so that understanding the content of the text
is considered as good, but not necessary? To what extent is this true?.

Thank you,
