Since Sri Chinmoy resumed weightlifting in September 1998, at the age of 67, the media has followed his adventures with great interest, airing footage of his elephant and plane lifts, as well as his double-arm, seated calf and standing calf raises. Sri Chinmoy’s daring feats and his love of self-transcendence, specially in the face of his advancing years, have offered inspiration for young and old alike. Moreover, the paradox of a man who is at once a spiritual leader, a musician, a poet and a weightlifter has captured the imagination of people worldwide who have posed the question, “Is he one man or ten?” Sri Chinmoy’s weightlifting anniversary on November 17th was seen around the world multiple times on the following news and sports programmes:
