Well, today I was doing naam abiyaas but instead of feeling that feeling of concentration I felt like crying but at the same time I felt love (for vaheguru) I felt as if I was putting my heart and soul into it but the thing I don't understand is why did I feel like crying, I felt like my heart was breaking but I don't know why. Surely I should've just felt happy? Does anyone know what I am going through and if it is actually a real thing to feel and if anyone has felt this before?

VJKK VJKF :waheguru:

You are experiencing bairaag. Your soul is feeling the separation of God. It’s a good sign on the spiritual journey, the soul yearns for the love of Waheguru.

Sat Sree Akal Pen Jee,

indeed it is a blessing on you, for having those feelings of love and crying. It is bireh what you were having for the most beloved pyara preetam Wahiguru Akal Purukh.

Wisdom, intelectualism, virtues, can be had by many, and they may still remain dry, or let us say loveless.

But having bireh for Him, and shedding tears in His remeberance, is by His blessings, for engaging in that bhakti which He most likes and you do regularly. In this way many many sins are wiped away.

If ever we have to ask Him anything, let alone  it be His prem for His Lotus feet.

Stay blessed.

Sat Sree Akal.

Has anyone else felt this way before? And also is there gurbani about this?

During my visits to the Harimandir Sahib in late 1990s when I was studying at Guru Nanak Dev University in Amritsar, I often came across a very familiar scene – Inside the sanctum sanctorum, sitting opposite to the ‘kirtaniyes’, a man in his 30s, in a sense of extreme gush, mesmerized and actuated by the euphoria of the keertan, physically detached from the World around him, his eyes closed with tears flowing down his cheeks and drenching his black flowing beard.

Something conspicuously different from what others were doing- hurling their way towards the sanctum sanctorum, making their own space to bow down and offer their respects, very cautious of the positioning of the cameras, telecasting live images around the world. 

Wow! I used to say every time I saw him. I thought, this is what one needs in order to attain a humane connection with that place and the environment. But I also realized that this was something inveterate, which would only come with time, filled with love for the Guru and Gurbani…

hau reh na ska bin dekhe preetma mai neer vahe vahe chale jeeo. 
I cannot survive without seeing my Beloved. My eyes are welling up with tears. 
(M4; Pg 94; SGGS)

But I was also a bit puzzled. Why this melancholy? It is said, ‘’how but through a broken heart can Lord enter’’. Was it the environment, the shabad or something else? It was all-in-one I guess. Sitting with crossed legs, closed eyes, listening to the ‘dhur ki baani’ written by our Gurus – this reaction is inevitable if we really concentrate on the shabad, its meaning and environment.

Also, is melancholy a reflection of the Sikhs’ perception of ‘man neevan’ which they utter daily in their prayer, ‘man neevan; mat uchee’? (humble mind and exalted wisdom). It’s such a unique combination of the ‘man’ (mind) being humble but at the same time the spirits being high.

Sat Sree Akal Pen Jee,

 I don´t think it is melancholy. It can be bireh, the pain of separation, like when a fish is brought out from the water; or either, tears of ecstasy, tears of the lover, of the sikh, of having the Darshan of Guru Jee.

Just as, when a mother sees and meets her child after a long time, words do not talk much, so in a similar way, the intense feeling of spiritual love,  of the lover jeev atma towards the beloved Karta Purukh.

Blessed  he/she, who has this type of love for Wahiguru Akal Purukh.

All this is nothing, but His apaar Kirpa.

He is within, and when He pulls the strings from within, the sikh, can not resist His pull, and sehaje sehaje gets attracted towards Him.

Sat Sree Akal.

Thanks bhaji. However I am only quoting those words. They are written by someone else, as the link refers to.

    • Shalom Sri Akal... I mean, Sat Sri Akal, fellow Sikh brothers and sisters. 😅
    • That happened to me once. I did an additional Jap Ji Sahib for a few days. It was an accident. Make amends according to your conscience, and move on.
    • There is simply no reason to do agan bhet (tribute to the fire). There are ways of repairing books. (Yeah, I know Gutka Sahib is not a mere book, but I'm just talking about the technology of binding.) I have no clue why your soul doesn't agree to do path on that Gutka Sahib. Do you think it has been sullied? Even if you wrote Gurbani on something that was ritually impure, that would make it pure: ਤਰ ਤਾਰਿ ਅਪਵਿਤ੍ਰ ਕਰਿ ਮਾਨੀਐ ਰੇ ਜੈਸੇ ਕਾਗਰਾ ਕਰਤ ਬੀਚਾਰੰ ॥ ਭਗਤਿ ਭਾਗਉਤੁ ਲਿਖੀਐ ਤਿਹ ਊਪਰੇ ਪੂਜੀਐ ਕਰਿ ਨਮਸਕਾਰੰ ॥੨॥ The palmyra palm tree is considered as impure and so are deemed its leaves to be. But if the Lord's praise be written on it, we worship it and bow before it. p1293   Similarly, Guest Komal, for whatever you think the pages of the Gutka Sahib became "impure" by falling on the ground, it is still pure. Get it out of your head. The very Gurbani you're reciting says so. This is not to say that you should throw dirt on purpose on a Gutka sahib. It is only to say you shouldn't burn a Gutka for your mistake.
    • 1. Beggars can't be choosers. I'll take what we can get. I'm actually fine with numbers.  Yeah, so many of them have no clue what Gurbani says, but as long as they, in their minds, "ਮੰਨ" Guru Granth Sahib ji, that's good enough for me. Because who am I to say I'm any better than them? ਹਉ ਅਪਰਾਧੀ ਗੁਨਹਗਾਰ ਹਉ ਬੇਮੁਖ ਮੰਦਾ॥ ਚੋਰੁ ਯਾਰੁ ਜੂਆਰਿ ਹਉ ਪਰ ਘਰਿ ਜੋਹੰਦਾ॥ I am a criminal, a sinner, evil and apostate. I am a thief, adulterer; gambler who always keeps his eye upon other's household. Vaar Bhai Gurdas ji 36, Pauri 21   2. I'm pleased to be part of a Panth which encouraged people to join it for the love of Guru Nanak ji, instead of being forced to (by various means) like the Abrahamics.   3. If you're in the company of non-practicing Sikhs, they'll generally let you do your thing (Nitnem, Reharas, whatever). It's not like you're asking "Hey, mind if I do Namaz?" Or "I'm fasting for Ramadan". You're part of the same religion, though they're not strict about it. 4. What the Mullahs do is, first they get you into their religion. Then they indoctrinate the kids into Jihad. Why can't we do the same (indoctrinate into Bhagti, not Jihad)?
    • But that's not what he was saying. He was saying that certain among us not only compromised with maryada while working for the new masters, but also -during off hours,  -after retiring from service, and -worst of all, passed on those compromises to following generations as a kind of baseline   The only true baseline for maryada is the maryada of Guru Gobind Singh ji.
