Questions and answers on the physical body

On 13 March 1977 Sri Chinmoy answered the following questions at an indoor exercise room which he and his disciples have equipped for ping-pong, weight-training and light exercise.

Question: The Supreme gave me an abundance of height. I wonder if He wants me to have an abundance of weight also.

Sri Chinmoy: The Supreme does not want you to have more weight. Your height is excellent, and your present weight is excellent. Now speed is the thing that you need: speed in the physical, speed in the vital, speed in the mind and speed in the heart. Height you have got, and weight you have got. Now what you need is an increase in speed.
