In this video, Kailash talks about what he understands by the concept of self-transcendence; he explains how self-transcendence is the process of going deeper in meditation and understanding more about our real nature. Kailash also explains how sport can help us to practise a form of self-transcendence that can be then used in other areas of life.
Self-transcendence is a term Sri Chinmoy often used to describe both spiritual and physical efforts to go beyond our current limits.
“Self-transcendence gives us joy in boundless measure. When we transcend ourselves, we do not compete with others. We do not compete with the rest of the world, but at every moment we compete with ourselves. We compete only with our previous achievements. And each time we surpass our previous achievements, we get joy.”
