One who chants the holy name of the Lord is immediately freed from the reactions of unlimited sins, even if he chants indirectly [to indicate something else], jokingly, for musical entertainment, or even neglectfully. This is accepted by all the learned scholars of the scriptures.
Srimad Bhagavatam 6.2.14,
Krishna is the ultimate purpose of all sacrifice. He is also the enjoyed of all sacrifices; therefore He is known as Yajna-Purusa.
Human Life is meant for reviving one's eternal relation with the Lord and all religious injunctions are meant for awakening this dormant instinct of the living entity.
The self-effulgent Vaikuntha planets, by whose illumination alone all the illuminating planets within this material world give off reflected light, cannot be reached by those who are not merciful to other living entities.
