“I have always felt that oneness is the most powerful aspect in God’s creation, and it comes in three parts. Oneness with the creator. Oneness with one’s soul. And oneness with each other.”
“We are living in a time in which we have to see each other in all of us as members of one family. One world family. And this applies not only on earth but across the universe.”
Vajra bicycles over to the race every morning at a shockingly early time of the morning or very late at night, take your pick. He then spends several hours collecting all the trash that has accumulated over the late hours. He is meticulous and will not even leave a bottle cap as long as his headlamp can spot it.
It is not an obsessive thing in any way but because of his deep love of the race and the 7 runners who work so hard he feels a deep responsibility to keep the course they run upon as sacred as possible. So he does his job with dignity, with mindfulness, and more importantly with heart. For Vajra, once you have met him will surprise you with just how truly wide open heart is really is. One that generously seems to have room for anyone who crosses his path.
Vajra feels very much a part of not just the physical challenges of the race but also to keep bright and alive the very spirit of transcendence which is at the very core of what happens here.
” I feel my oneness with them. I can never stress just how important that one factor is. You grow with each runner as they go through their problems. And it makes you a far better person, as well as that individual.”

Wow, A spectacular day of interviews with (and photos of) the true jewels of humanity. Thank you, Vajra, for your humble and sincere service. One often says that we “love and pray for humanity” but in your case, these aren’t idle words but committed actions. Then you give us bonus videos of Sahishnu, Andreas and Mark. What a great day — gratitude!
Vajra, the embodiment of service. Hope to see him soon!
