Shabar Mantras are extremely powerful because they do not have "Keelak". Keelak means limit. Keelak is like a cap, which seals the power of a Mantra and can only be unlocked after a certain number of chants are completed. As Shabar Mantras do not have a Keelak, the Mantras start showing their power from the first Mala itself. However, Shabar Mantras are beneficial in today's times when people do not have time to chant a Mantra lakhs of times.
However, it is also extremely dangerous. Every word that we speak has an effect on the environment. Hence, when we chant Shabar Mantras, there is a sudden surge in energy, which many times causes fear, and makes you feel like someone has kept a very heavy rock on your heart. It is sign of the amount of energy the Mantra Chant is harnessing.
Such fear caused in the heart is very dangerous. This fear is caused not only due to the Mantra Energy but also because the God whose Shabar Mantra you are chanting is now constantly keeping an eye on you. The Shabar Mantra has invoked him really quickly. This is the reason why many feel fear while chanting Shabar Mantras. Another danger of Shabar Mantras are the rules regarding chanting. When we chant Shabar Mantras, mistake should not be made while chanting the Mantra or else very tough situations will come up in your life. Also, Shabar Mantras should not be chanted without lighting a lamp and incense sticks.
Shabar Mantras are simply not meant for everyone. God only blesses success in Shabar Mantras to the spiritually advanced devotees. Similarly, for example, if you are chanting a Shabar Mantra of Hanuman, then Hanuman will only allow the deserving devotees to give swears [Promise or Kasam in Hindi] in his name to other Gods.
Hence, care should be taken while chanting Shabar Mantras. And, Shabar Mantras are strictly not meant for everyone. Shabar mantras of SaumyaDev [Beneficial Deities] like Rama, Krishna, Laxmi, etc won't work or provide you the fruit if you are still a novice. However, if novices end up using Shabar Mantras of extremely Ugra Devta [Fearsome Deities] and Devi like Hanuman, Kali, Durga, Bhairav, Narasimha, Baglamukhi, Matangi, etc. can face death-like painful difficulties.
