World record

We Did It!

On Saturday, August 15th, Team Shakti beat the former world’s record at Gärdet in Stockholm, Sweden when 2,558 people lay on their Shakti Mats and sang the peace mantra ”Om Shanti Om”. Check out the the film clip of this new world’s record on YouTube and on Aftonbladets WebbTV!

Jack Brockband from Guinness World RecordsTM was on site and registered the record as ”The Most People Chanting.” In actuality, there was a total of 3,000 people lying on their Shakti Mats, but so many of them fell asleep, that the responsible controllers were not able to include them because they stopped singing during the on-going attempt to break the former world’s record.

The Guinness World RecordsTM presented a certificate of the new World’s Record to Team Shakti’s Om Mokshananda who guided the participants during the mantra meditation.

More pictures and interviews will soon be available at There will be also be photographs, as well as video material taken from the air.
