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

" Like a good horse stirred at a touch of the whip, be diligent and get alarmed by endless round of rebirths (i.e. samsara). By faith, morality, effort, concentration, and discernment of the Dhamma, be endowed with knowledge and practice of morality and with mindfulness, leave this immeasurable dukkha (of samsara) behind. "
