In the Prema-vivarta, Krishndasa inquires from Lord Gauranga:
prabhu bale—“shraddha-vishvasa sakalera mula,
vishvasa-abhave keha nahi labhe phala.”
Lord Gauranga replied—“Faith and conviction in the glories of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra is the root cause of success in chanting. Without this faith no one can get the desired results from the chanting process.”
prabhu bale—“antaryami nama-bhagavan;
vishvasanusare phala karena pradana.
The Lord continued—“The Hare Krishna maha-mantra is the incarnation of Lord Krishna Himself, Who is omniscient. Thus it bestows the benefit to the chanter solely on the basis of one’s faith in the chanting process.
namera mahima purna vishvasa na kare;
namera phala nahi paya nama aparadhe mare.
“Those who do not have complete faith in the glories of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra will never achieve the desired results from chanting but will be destroyed because of their offenses against the Hare Krishna maha-mantra.”
