advice to rahula

I read on this forum someone saying that if you practice the rahula sutta (where Buddha tells his son to be like a mirror with all of his actions), that one can attain sainthood? is this correct? thoughts?

A small but crucial point: if one practices the Rahula sutta, it'll bring great results. If one practices to perfection the Rahula Suttas (MN 61 and 62), one can attain sainthood.
