Crying when Chanting

Postby ikumpavat » Mon Jun 28, 2010 6:53 pm


I am new to ISCKON and started chanting.

But when i really concentrate my mind in to Krishna and remember Krishna while chanting i start Crying.

So when i am chanting in temple/in public place, i avoid to concentrate my mind in to Krishna due to my this Crying problem.

What should be the reason of this Crying while chanting and concentrating in Krishna?

How should i go ahead?

Hare krishna,
thank you very much for sharing this.
in order to help/suggest you please give more details like what you feel could be possible reason for crying like
1) because of seaperation from krishna you cry
2) eye problem
3) you think something else in mind and cry
4) you are guilty that you can't serve krishna properly
please mention if some other reason is their
if it is natural for you to cry while chanting because of seaperation then it is very i understand if your cry is ONLY for krishna then it is your excellent and you should not try to hide it.
please mention since when u r chanting ? do u aspiring to take initiation from ISKCON sanyasi maharaj ?

हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे || हरे रामा हरे रामा रामा रामा हरे हरे||

Hare Krishna.


I don't know the exact reason. But i experience that when concentrate either by looking in to the eyes of Krishna (either Deity or Picture) or by thinking (SMARAN) about Krishna, it happens.

When i do not concentrate in to Krishna. It does not.

Amongst given reason, the 4th reason may be true.

And Pr.Ji, recently i have committed my self and Krishna not to cry, after that it does not happens frequently.

However when i listen or recite glories of Krishna, it starts again.

Dear Prabhu Ji

You are not alone, I am crying also when I am listen to Govindam Âdi Purusham

I feel separation and alone from Krsna and it is spiritual separation.

Hare Krisna
