Conversation-Hearts 15: Adhiratha Keefe

Last modified September 4, 2012

Adhiratha Keefe talks about his experiences of long distance swimming inspired by Sri Chinmoy’s philosophy of self-transcendence. Adhiratha was one of the first team members from Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team to swim the English Channel in 1985.

Sri Chinmoy composed songs for both Adiratha Keefe and Vasanti Niemz, as a tribute to their achievements. They were the first two members of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team to complete the channel crossing in 1985. Members of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team have made over forty Channel Crossings – the most by any athletic organisation.
