Reporter: Does that mean that this 13,000-pound plane was easier to lift than the elephant?Sri Chinmoy: Strangely enough, even though the plane is so large and heavy, it has a kind of charm. That charm takes away the weight of the plane. I feel that I am flying with the plane. When we think of an elephant, on the other hand, a kind of unfettered fear enters into us. So everything depends on our inner feeling.
