Sri Chinmoy talks about the importance of cultivating inner peace, through prayer and meditation to help with our outer activities. This interview was featured on a tv programme the McCreary Report and included an interview about Sri Chinmoy’s weightlifting.

Excerpt from the interview:

“There is a great link, because the inner life and the outer life must go together. If I pray early in the morning, then I can have good thoughts towards you. Then I will have good feelings, I will have love for you. … I am not telling people to meditate in order to lift up weights. … if you have peace of mind, then you develop inner strength, we shall not quarrel, fight, nor declare wars.”
