Sport has a secret. It can become an open door to your unimaginable inner potential. Meditation is an adventurous journey to your unlimited source. With a focused mind, calm emotions and the right attitude, the intensity, the flow and they joy experienced in sport can become meditation.
Although today's world-class athletes may have reached the current physical limits of the human body, the spiritual resources hidden deeper within still remain untapped. In this remarkable book, spiritual teacher and athlete Sri Chinmoy reveals the inner aspect of sport —a dimension that everyone can add to his or her current physical and mental training. It is this new dimension that enables us to enhance our physical performance, but also makes our satisfaction from sport deep and lasting.
Throughout this book, you will meet world champions such as Carl Lewis, Tatyana Lebedeva, Tegla Laroupe, Bill Pearl or Paul Tergat, sharing their own inner secrets and spiritual perspective on training and competition.
