Sri Chinmoy publicly lifts 106¼ lbs. using only his right arm at Aspiration-Ground in Jamaica, Queens, New York. (Two days earlier, Sri Chinmoy lifted the same weight at his home gym.) Photos from this inspirational lift are reproduced on posters that are displayed in gymnasiums.


The Most Difficult Lift

The most difficult of the lifts that I do is the stomach lift. After that, for fifteen or twenty minutes, I do not know my name even. I have to drink something immediately and I do not feel like talking.

This morning I lifted 300 pounds 30 times on my stomach. — Sri Chinmoy
