If you know it can't change one's karma, then you should be certain
it achieves nothing. Being certain it achieves nothing, why could you possibly want to chant?
But if you don't know if it does nothing, then you don't really know if it can change one's karma. Your desire to chant, then, is a naive hope that your actions might create some positive change, based on your wavering belief in whether one can affect another's karma. Right?
