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. However, one must practice mindfulness to achieve Enlightenment and cleanse the defilements. The Sixth Patriarch of Zen has a similar argument in his Platform Sutra.

Quotes

" In the sky there is no track; outside the Buddha's Teaching there is no ariya bhikkhu (samana). All beings take delight in fetters (i.e., craving, pride and wrong view) that prolong samsara; all the Buddhas are free from these fetters. "

The Dhammapada
