An Indian Civilizational Perspective

The Swami who Lifts Elephants!

Sumangali has described Shri Chinmoy and his passion of staying healthy. He was in Thailand…. lifting elephants! Wow, this is one cool Swami who tries to lift a bunch of popular local animals anywhere he goes. Jokes apart, he has started this very popular movement which does a good job starting schools and temples where the non-resident Indians get their spirituality fix for the week and help them stay connected! btw, please do visit Sumangali.org – it is a cool blog!

Sri Chinmoy recently visited Thailand during his annual harmony and humanitarian travels, and decided to lift some elephants while he was there.
A champion decathlete in his youth, Sri Chinmoy later took up weightlifting, and is still weightlifting at age 75. His aim is not to compete with others, but simply to inspire others to transcend their boundaries. In his own words:

“I am a man of prayer and meditation. I feel inspiration is of paramount importance. If I can inspire someone, and if that person also can inspire me, then we can do many good things for the betterment of this world.”
