What does the man with the most Guinness World Records do when he’s run out of records to break — he reclaims an old record that he lost. Yes.. Ashrita Furman of USA has set a new world record for the longest garland of flowers. Furman has assembled a 8 km-long garland weighing around 1700 kilograms in New York to commemorate Sri Chinmoy’s 50 years of manifestation for world peace. Yesterday, more than a thousand disciples gathered together in Queens New York celebrating Sri Chinm0y’s 83rd anniversary. The master passed away on October 11, 2007.
