Part XIVCSC 103-106. On 6 July 1989, during his visit to Sydney, Australia, Sri Chinmoy was asked these questions in a series of television interviews.
Question: Sri Chinmoy, how can athletes use your philosophy to help them?Sri Chinmoy: The outer life and the inner life always go together. The outer running inspires us to dive deep within. Again, the inner running, which is prayer and meditation, tells us to keep the body in perfect shape. If the body is not fit, if the body is not in perfect condition, we shall not be able to wake up early in the morning and pray and meditate. So the outer life and the inner life go together. They are like the obverse and reverse of the same coin. We need them both in our day-to-day life for our inner and outer satisfaction.
