Re: Ted Corbit - The silent Brahmin
- Here is the song that Sri Chinmoy wrote for Ted Corbitt and we sang at
the start of the 24-Hour race to honor Ted.
"Ted Corbitt, Ted Corbitt, Ted!
Runner-world revolution head.
O softness runner-saint.
Measureless miles your legs did paint.
A brave champion is found.
In Heavenly Silence-Sound."
Thank you Shivaram and others who responded to the article about Ted
and to those who may not respond but nevertheless appreciate the value
of Ted's contributions to the running world and his friendship with
As I stated in another post, Ted's son Gary also respects Sri Chinmoy
to the extent that he prefaced his very long article about his father
with this title and paragraph:
"Remembering Theodore "Ted" Corbitt
Master Teacher: The Silent Brahmin
"The Silent Brahmin" is the name given to Ted Corbitt by the late
international spiritual leader Sri Chinmoy. The Brahmins are the
philosophers of India. The name refers to the peace and wisdom Sri
Chinmoy saw radiating from this quiet champion of the running world."
