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.

Your soul has learned what separation from Vaheguru truly feels like. It is good for the soul to learn what it's not knowing about.

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.

After sharing my experience, the same hasn't happened again. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or bad thing.

    • What about Gurbani? I never said we should change Gurbani, because we can’t. But we can remove Perso-Arabic influences from our vernacular.  And when did I say that we should all begin to speak Hindi and Sanskrit, no that’s a terrible idea. We need to revise Punjabi, and you can call me whatever you like, but I firmly stand by that. Have you forgotten that the very tyrants that killed our Gurus, the Sahibzaades, slaughtered our men, our women, and children, sold our ancestors as slaves, pillaged our land for centuries imposed Perso-Arabic influences onto our language. If we have any ounce of self respect, we should purge those influences from our language.  How am I demoting Punjabi? How am I saying we should stray away from Gurmukhi? In fact if you read any of my other threads you will realize I advocate further development of Gurmukhi and Punjabi. Why are you accusing me of things that I am opposed against in the first place?
    • The Saroop is only similar externally, ideologically there is a world of difference: https://tisarpanthdotcom.wordpress.com/2017/04/01/panj/
    • I began to realize, albeit a bit too late, that there really wasn’t any point in arguing with Jagsaw any further. But I gave the poster some benefit of doubt. But thank you for reassuring me that I wasn’t wrong in my judgment.
    • Kick out Gurwant from the Gurdwara. Do this to every Indian politician unless they prove they deserve otherwise. But for pete's sake what is "ehdi shame shame kro," have a discussion with him, and make him reveal his true colours. 
    • ok duniya for example was used in Gurbani so what then ?...I think Punjabi was selected as it has elements of all parts of society represented and is lok boli ...Tej seems to want to turn revisionist  as the deluded hinduvta folks are doing  ...surely as Sikhs we can be evenhanded and preserve our maa boli without chopping it up into shreds. It is not a major thing if we say odd words here and there , I mean if you were so incensed by the historical insults of mughals then what would you do about hindi /sanskrit as the pushers of those cultural languages have attacked Harmandir Sahib Four times in 70 years, reneged on promises, stolen water, dishonoured our womenfolk and murdered our men ? And now try to demote your language and its Guru-given script as secondary to Thug's languages
