“Even if in the beginning one chants the Hare Krishna mantra with offenses, one will become free from such offenses by chanting again and again. Papa-kshayash ca bhavati smaratam tam ahar-nisham: one becomes free from all sinful reactions if one chants day and night, following the recommendation of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. “
Shrila Prabhupada in Shrimad-Bhagavatam 7.5.23:
“While chanting the holy name of the Lord, one should be careful to avoid ten offenses...There is no way to atone for any of these offenses. It is therefore recommended that an offender at the feet of the holy name continue to chant the holy name twenty-four hours a day. Constant chanting of the holy name will make one free of offenses, and then he will gradually be elevated to the transcendental platform on which he can chant the pure holy name and thus become a lover of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.”
