In Buddhism we talk about kamma, and without kamma nothing is possible. Kamma is intention; so if the chanter's every intention is pure and good, many wholesome kamma will accumulate.

Quotes

" All mental phenomena have mind as their forerunner; they have mind as their chief; they are mind-made. If one speaks or acts with an evil mind, suffering (dukkha') follows him just as the wheel follows the hoof-print of the ox that draws the cart. "
