My Night-time TV Appearance

by Sri Chinmoy
Video of Sri Chinmoy lifting 200 pounds with one arm is broadcast onTV Channel 5 in New York.


I am sure you do not watch television at four o’clock in the morning, but had you been watching Channel 5 last night at four o’clock, you would have seen me lifting 200 pounds with one arm! Dhanu went to the store of the man who sold us the video camera that takes the weightlifting pictures and he said that he saw me on television. His little child was crying, so he had to get up at four in the morning. Then he turned on the television and saw me lifting. He was so happy and proud because he sold us the video camera which takes pictures of my weightlifting.

JAMAICA, NY — Actors and civil rights activists Ossie Davis and his wife, Ruby Dee, were lifted by Sri Chinmoy at Aspiration-Ground April 16 as part of the ‘Lifting Up the World with a Oneness-Heart’ program. Also lifted that day was New York Knicks superstar Walt Frazier.

“Part of my heart will always be in this garden where we find what the world hungers for ... so beautifully illustrated in the life and person of Sri Chinmoy,” Davis said, after being lifted. 

Ruby Dee declared: “It is with deepest gratitude and a sense of truly being lifted up in spirit that we stand here now.” 

Walt Frazier said: “I thought I’ve been to the pinnacle ... in basketball with championships, but this was a different feeling, a very galvanizing experience.”
