Sri Chinmoy: Is Lopes' world record an inspiration for you to do better, or is it something frightening or challenging?

Seko: What is most extraordinary is his age — the fact that he is 38.

Sri Chinmoy: It should be an inspiration, not a frightening experience.

Seko: Carlos Lopes' world-record victory gives me inspiration in the sense that if one heightens one's spirituality to a high level, one can achieve many things in spite of one's age. So it is truly an inspiration for me.
