OM103 – Filmmaker Sanjay Rawal On Meditation, Running, and Self Transcendence

Running, Meditation, Self Transcendence

In this escapade, filmmaker Sanjay Rawal and I explore our shared ordeal with Sri Chimnoy( my first spiritual professor) and discover-to our shared surprise-that we affiliated Sri Chimnoy’s community around the same duration and attended some of the same events.

We explore the enliven production of Sri Chimnoy and his extraordinary and tremendously influential schoolteacher, Sri Aurobindo.

Then we dive into Sanjay’s movie about the remarkable 3100 miles ultra marathon that his spiritual society hosts each year.

Sanjay’s film is a meditation on the dominance of passing as a vehicle for self greatnes. The footage is splendid, immersive, and hypnotic.

If you’re interested in drive and reflection and pushing your own restrictions, this is essential watching. If you’re a dedicated runner or meditator, you will get a lot out of this film since Sanjay explores the intersection of these two punishes in our dialogue and in the movie.

I experienced this conversation exceedingly. Sanjay is a fount of information regarding all things meditation and running.


Sanjay Rawal operated in the human rights and international evolution sectors for 15 years in over 40 countries before focusing his love for photography and storytelling onto filmmaking.

His first peculiarity, Food chain( 2014 ), premiered at the 2014 Berlinale and screened at Tribeca before assuring domestic dissemination from Screen Media. The movie was produced by Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser and narrated by Forest Whitaker. It went on to screen in 1,100 more theaters during its theatrical, semi-theatrical& society screening tour.

A lifelong runner, Sanjay was happy to lose the pounds he gained snacking Mexican food in farmworker towns and take on a project about leading. His latest cinema, 3100: Run and Become, opened in theaters in die 2018.


Sanjay Rawal ambles his talk. He’s had a daily reflection practise for 27 times, was a middle-distance runner in high-school and college, and extends an average of 50 miles per week. He pulled off filming 3100 where no one else could because spiritual practitioners around the world recognized that Sanjay incarnated a height of restraint akin to theirs.

He learned his musing practise at the paws of spiritual master.
