Part One: Afternoon lifts17 November 1999, Aspiration-Ground
Inspiration-flow...Sri Chinmoy is known as a man of prayer and meditation, a poet, singer, musician, artist, philosopher and peace-dreamer. One does not expect such a man of the spirit to be active in the field of weightlifting — specially at the age of 68. Sri Chinmoy explains:
"Everything I do, I do at the behest of my Inner Pilot. Now He has commanded me to serve Him through weightlifting, where the barriers of the mind can be lifted. If I can inspire anybody in this world, then I feel that my life is meaningful."
