Student: But in bodybuilding the competitors all look almost identical, whereas in weightlifting at least there is a goal.Sri Chinmoy: Do not look at the bodybuilders’ muscles. Look at their face, specially at their eyes. Immediately they will give a divine vibration. Do not look at their stomachs or quadriceps or anything. Just look from the neck up, at their eyes and face. As soon as you look at their eyes, bodybuilders will give a good vibration. But if you look at the eyes of weightlifters, immediately you will get another vibration.
