During an interview for television in Holland, Sri Chinmoy comments on the reasons and inspiration for his starting to practice weightlifting.
Excerpt from the interview:
“In my case it is my inner inspiration… there was a time when I disliked it [weightlifting] immensely… I got inspiration from within to start weightlifting, so that I can keep my body physically fit. That is how I started. I do not know any techinques, and as you can see I do not have the physique of a bodybuilder or weightlifter.“
