1) Yes. Liberation comes by grace. It is not "earned." It is bestowed. Focus on paying your karmic "bills" as they are presented to you.

2) Yes. What matters in the reading of banis is that you pay attention and listen to the sound current.

If your devotion is simple and pure, there is never any problem.
