Surprising a gym owner

Today I went to a gym near the Holiday Inn. The gym owner recognised me the moment I walked in; he had seen my picture in Muscle Mag.

At first he didn’t believe that I was really Sri Chinmoy. Then Savyasachi gave him our brochure, and he said that he had recognised me the moment I had walked in.

Like a child, he was showing me all his different equipment. I told him, “I have come here with some students.”

He said, “Please bring them here. For them, everything is free.”

I told him that I would lift him. He was so thrilled. He said he would keep the picture of the lift in his office.
