Sri Chinmoy: I do lift weights at home, but who is going to know about it or be inspired by it? If I don’t do it in public, then how am I going to inspire mankind? The other day I lifted 400 pounds in my room. Luckily it was recorded on video so we can prove it. We also have an automatic camera that takes still pictures. But if there were no videos and still pictures taken, do you think anyone would believe me?
Interviewer: Why all this publicity? Why do you do it in such a public way? Why not lift weights at home?
