“If the Holy Name is chanted just once, even impurely, or if one simply hears it, then that person, regardless of his birth, is immediately liberated. This is the declaration of scripture. Furthermore, when the Holy Name is chanted in the clearing stage ( when impurities are slowly cleansed from the heart of the chanter ) then the highest goal is attained after some delay.”
[ Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur, Sri Harinam Cintamani, Chapter 2 ]
