Who has the longest pencil in the world?

Sri Chinmoy.

It is “20 feet, 6 inches long and weighs over 560 pounds,” reports The Arizona Daily Wildcat.

This guru, that some call a “cult leader,” has a penchant for publicity.

In 1998 the gurus “Marathon Team” built the wold’s longest pencil. And his disciples have set other records such as pogo hopping underwater and doing the most successive summersaults.

Chinmoy has also indulged in feigned weight lifts of livestock in New Zealand and almost anything else imaginable to see his name in print.

Some contrived efforts orchestrated by the guru have made it into the Guinness Book of World Records.

It all sounds pretty ridiculous doesn’t it? And it hardly reflects the supposed spiritual focus of a self-proclaimed “God man.”

However, one stunt wasn’t so funny and ended in tragedy.

A devoted disciple of Chinmoy so wanted to please his guru he apparently attempted to set a record through his duration underwater on one breath. He drowned in a bathtub.

But that sad incident didn’t stop the attention hungry Chinmoy, who still pushes his people to do whatever it takes to feed his apparently insatiable ego.

Some say the mark of a true “guru” is the loss of ego, but in Chinmoy’s case it seems to be an artificially inflated one.
