In November 2004, during a special weightlifting demonstration, Sri Chinmoy lifted his own smart car – holding the weight of his car (over 2,000lbs) on his shoulders. The lift was achieved on a specially constructed platform to enable this unique lift. Bishwas Polissar, a disciple of Sri Chinmoy from New York, talks about his involvement in making this apparatus for Sri Chinmoy.

The video includes footage of Sri Chinmoy’s lift, and Bishwas’ perspective on this unique episode in Sri Chinmoy’s weightlifting career.
