Sports is one of the cornerstones of Sri Chinmoy’s philosophy of integration of the inner and the outer lives. In this video, Sri Chinmoy gives a brief introduction to his philosophy on sport.

Why do we watch sports?
To receive inspiration, enthusiasm,
Joy and courage.

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