A short film (15 mins) about the running career of Sri Chinmoy. The video features archive footage of Sri Chinmoy’s running, plus audio extracts from his philosophy of running; there are also short interviews with those who participated in Sri Chinmoy’s running career.

Sri Chinmoy was unique among spiritual Masters in demonstrating that sports can play a vital role in the life of a spiritual seeker.  Himself a life long athlete, Sri Chinmoy encouraged his students to take seriously both the challenges of the inner life, and the opportunities for self-transcendence offered by participation in sport.

Run and become.
Become and run.
Run to succeed in the outer world.
Become to proceed in the inner world.
