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

" Cut off the five ( the lower five fetters); give up the five (the upper five fetters); and develop the five ( controlling faclities). The bhikkhu who has freed himself of the five bonds (passion, ill will, ignorance, pride and wrong view) is called "One who has crossed the flood (of samsara)". "
