This photographic tribute celebrates Ashrita Furman’s incredible Guinness World Record achievements – including the fastest mile on a space hopper, balancing a pool cue on one finger, jumping rope with a pogo stick, standing on a Swiss ball, and balancing a milk bottle on his head.

2005 marks over 100 Guinness World Records for Ashrita: a multitude of imaginative and physically demanding feats across seven continents. Ashrita attributes his tremendous capacity for self-transcendence to studying meditation with Sri Chinmoy.
