From the preface: "Champaklal Speaks inspires us to ponder over his extraordinary life and fills our hearts with reverence for his Lord and the Mother. We can see that his observations are the expressions of profound truths revealed to him through experiences in his daily life... These reminiscences recreate the atmosphere of the days when Sri Aurobindo and the Mother worked together on this earth to transfigure the consciousness of their disciples and all mankind, as well as to reveal a new future for the entire earth."
Champaklal first came to Pondicherry in 1921, and for good in 1923. He served both Sri Aurobindo and the Mother as their personal attendant. He passed away in 1992.
This book contains reminiscences, correspondence, notes and other material gathered during Champaklal's long period of intimate contact with Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
This revised and enlarged edition includes many new episodes in the main section "Recollections and Diary Notes", as well some material published in "Champaklal's Treasures".
