72,585 burning candles broke the Guinness World Record for “Most Lit Candles on a Cake” at the Sri Chinmoy Centre in New York City. The effort was led by Ashrita Furman, a prolific world record breaker who himself holds the Guinness World Record for Most Guinness World Records.
The cake was created in celebration of meditation teacher Sri Chinmoy’s life, on what would have been his 85th birthday. A team of 100 members of the Sri Chinmoy Centre came together to achieve this record.
