Sport, Meditation and Self-Transcendence


A documentary movie was made about the world’s longest race – the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race.  Here is the trailer.

This is an interview about the 3100 Mile Movie with the director Sanjay Rawal and  popular podcast host Rich Roll.  In the long-format interview Sanjay and Rich dive deep into the spiritual significance of transcendence through running.

In this video 9x Olympic gold medalist, US Track and Field athlete Carl Lewis reads the chapter “Self-Transcendence” from Sri Chinmoy’s book: The Jewels of Happiness”.  Carl is the perfect person to read this chapter.  He lived self-transcendence at a professional sporting level for an amazing four Olympics.  He was a very dear friend of Sri Chinmoy’s and would visit him often in New York for spiritual upliftment.  Carl Lewis in return would derive great joy from giving running coaching tips to Sri Chinmoy.
