Question: What lessons can we learn in the inner world and in the outer world from your weightlifting?

Sri Chinmoy: You can learn the importance of two things: determination in the outer world and God's Compassion in the inner world. God's Compassion is absolutely necessary along with our own determination. Man's determination has to be receptive to God's Compassion. One has to have determination in order to receive God's Compassion. Determination on the physical plane and Compassion on the psychic plane must go together.
