Q & A: Weeping uncontrollably when I visit Temple, Is it Kriya?
 
I am a normal person, 43 years old, working in an industry. Since my childhood I was attracted by Ramayana Mahabharata and religious books, attracted by divinity and follow possible good things. During 1994 I got training on Siddha Samadhi Yoga (SSY) and practicing Pranayama and Dhyana. I am facing one problem that I am unable to talk about God or devotional matters. When I start about to talk my throat blocks and tears start flowing. I start weeping uncontrollably. When I visit temples and see God (idols) I start to weep. It is very difficult for me to control weeping. When I visited ISKON Temple recently my whole body started shaking. I felt some electric shock like feeling. My head felt compressed and uncontrolled tears started flowing from my eyes. My family and friends were laughing at me. I don’t know how I can control this. Please help me and guide me.

In my view you are a fortunate person who can weep even with the sight of the God. There are not many who have this intense feeling of Bhakti within them. Most of the people are like an emotionless rock (not a compliment) when compared to you. So you should be proud about yourself. The people around you have no idea about why this happens so, because they just don’t have the sensitivities you are having towards the divine.

At the same time I agree this type of weeping events should not happen before the people and general public who just cannot understand your state.

Your description of the weeping events (shaking, feeling electric shocks) sounds to me like a Kriya. Complete description of Kriyas and the science behind them is given here – There are 125,000 types of Kriyas or Spiritual Experiences. You can also watch various Kriyas in action here - Kriya videos

I do not know how long you meditate everyday. I feel you need to increase your meditation time to at least an hour every day. As your meditation time increases I have a feeling your weeping episodes in temples etc should stop. You may experience Kriyas during meditation (Which may include weeping) which will reduce such episodes outside in public life.

Let me know after couple of months of you regular meditation of an hour every day.

Thank you.

Yoga is an exact science. It aims at the harmonious development of body, mind and soul. Everyone should follow one Yoga as their primary Yoga (based on their character). Then we must combine Karma Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Gyan Yoga. This “Yoga Synthesis” will lead one to the God.
