Jose "Chegui" Torres, the beloved Puerto Rican Olympic silver medallist boxing champion and the 1965-66 Light-Heavyweight Champion of the World, was among the earliest guests to be lifted by Sri Chinmoy when he first began this programme in 1988.
"Sri Chinmoy is a wonderful messenger of love, will and strength — physical as well as mental... Whenever I watch Sri Chinmoy in action, I wonder if other people can grasp what I have been able to...every time: He trusts his mind, only because his heart rules...Long live the man who would help others out of his heart, not of his thoughts.
— Jose "Chegui" Torres"
