Appreciate if someone could explain on the teachings, the Buddha of time without beginning is the manifestation of the state of Buddhahood Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo: “The original Buddha whose life is without beginning or end is nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo Thus Come One”. How does it differ from Buddha of time without beginning (kuon ganjo)?

From where did you obtain the quoted material?

I have never heard of the Thus Come One in relation to Nam myoho renge kyo.

Shakyamuni was referred to as the Thus Come One.  (one who has arrived from the world of truth)

Nichiren Daishonin is distinguished as the Buddha of kuon ganjo (time without beginning)

All Shakyamuni's sutra's before the Lotus Sutra taught that the Buddha was an "extraordinary being to be revered from afar. By contrast, the Lotus Sutra explains that ordinary people are themselves Buddhas. This is a landmark teaching. The Lotus Sutra explains that the Buddha endowed with the three enlightened properties is the common mortal of kuon ganjo. " 

page  77 in Learning from the Gosho, the Eternal Teachings of Nichiren Daishonin.  Daisaku Ikeda

In the gosho On the Treasure Tower, Nichiren tells Abutsubo that he himself is the treasure tower
and that no other information is necessary.  He himself is a Buddha.

We ourselves as ordinary human beings are Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.

This is the teaching for the Latter Day of the Law.

When we embraced this teaching as taught by Nichiren we carry on as his disciples to help others awaken to their own Buddhanature..
