Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Sri Chinmoy was born in 1931 in East Bengal, India. He lived in New York, USA from 1964 until his passing in 2007. Through his own example which included running, tennis and extraordinary weightlifting feats, he showed that inner peace and meditation are a secret key to physical prowess. For twenty years Sri Chinmoy was a member of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, where he became a top sprinter and decathlete. In 1964 he moved to New York City and became one of the fi rst meditation masters who enthusiastically and wholeheartedly combined sport and meditation. For Sri Chinmoy, sport and meditation were complementary realities. One of the cornerstones of Sri Chinmoy s philosophy is the concept of self-transcendence, the ability to go beyond one s perceived limitations in order to make constant progress. It is only through progress, Sri Chinmoy says, that we can become truly happy. Deep within us there is an inexhaustible source of cosmic energy that can be accessed through the power of meditation. This energy can be applied in all of our physical activities and will give a tremendous boost to our achievements. At the age of 54 Sri Chinmoy began weightlifting. It was very inspiring to see him start a new sport at this age with such zeal and determination. With the progress he made in just a few months he amazed professional weightlifters and bodybuilders alike. Sri Chinmoy began by lifting forty pounds (18 kg), yet within five months, he was able to lift his own bodyweight of 155 pounds (70 kg) using just one arm. After only one year, he was able to lift 240 pounds (109 kg), more than one and a half times his body weight. As a spiritual master, Sri Chinmoy demonstrated how the physical and the spiritual can go together. In his early years he meditated up to eight hours a day while also maintaining a regular daily training routine of many hours. Even when he was in his sixties and seventies, Sri Chinmoy regularly lifted weights for many hours a day in order to inspire people to conquer the age barrier and to never give up. During his lifetime many world-class athletes met with Sri Chinmoy, athletes such as Jesse Owens, Carl Lewis, Muhammad Ali, Bill Pearl, Paul Tergat, Toshihiko Seko, Tegla Loroupe, Tatyana Lebedeva, Paula Radcliffe, Bill Rodgers, Steffi Graf, Monika Seles and Emil Zatopek. Nine-time Olympic champion Carl Lewis became one of Sri Chinmoy s closest friends. Sri Chinmoy accompanied Carl to three Olympic Games and encouraged Carl to feel that there are no limits to an athlete s capacity. Although today s world-class athletes may have reached the current physi- cal limits of the human body, the spiritual resources hidden deeper within still remain untapped. The inner training of our mind, heart and soul will enable us to enhance our physical performance beyond our imagination. Sri Chinmoy believed that many of today s world records can be broken by learning how to concentrate and meditate. In this respect Sri Chinmoy often spoke about the possibility of the sub two-hour marathon.

A new spiritual perspective on training and racing 10. Dezember 2013
Von Hidde Tangerman - Veröffentlicht auf
As a semi-professional marathon runner I thought I had read everything there is to know about the art of training and racing. However, this book opened up new vista's of understanding, as it approaches sports from the angle of meditation. Meditation is increasingly becoming more popular in our day and age, but I hadn't come across a book that tied it up so convincingly with sports. The insights by Sri Chinmoy are simple, practical and profound, and the book is peppered with quotes from accomplished athletes such as Carl Lewis and Paul Tergat. If you've reached a plateau in your own training and need some fresh and new perspectives, I highly recommend this book.
In-depth insight into using meditation to excel and enjoy sports 31. März 2014

I found it really compelling to have a spiritual master not only describe the use of meditation in sports, but it seems he himself was an athlete who actually ran over 20 marathons, among other things.

There were a lot of world-class athletes featured in the book which was interesting. Particularly to hear how they have either consciously incorporated meditation into their athletics, or they came to realize later that all along they were incorporating aspects of intense concentration and meditation.

I had no idea Carl Lewis was a meditator and took instruction from the author (Sri Chinmoy) during his olympic career. Now it makes a bit of sense, since Lewis was known to be the first off the line and one of the consistently fastest starters.

As a runner myself, I also found it fascinating to see how to broaden your awareness while running and get much more enjoyment from running. Now I am finding that I not only enjoy my runs more, but I am getting some of my best creative ideas and problem solving when out on a run. It has become a nice added value that makes me more inspired to string the shoes up and head out the door in the morning.

Over all this was one of those few books that really opened up my awareness and I refer back to again and again.

Purchased as a gift for my nephew. He was so happy as he had been shopping for a similar book unsuccessfully.
Deeply inspiring 18. Januar 2014

An incredible book! The weight that Sri Chinmoy was able to lift with the power of meditation is amazing. It is very inspiring to read about this hidden potential we have within. If we can get in touch with that source, then nothing seems to be impossible!
Reading about this has been really inspiring, both for its depth and the inspiration to work out it gave me.
An inspiring surprise! 6. Januar 2014

Who could have guessed that the great Carl Lewis was learning meditation from Sri Chinmoy! That could explain his longevity on the track. The chapter on King Carl is totally unique. Cool!
