Visions of Champaklal
These visions and inner experiences recorded by Champaklal between 1978 and 1987 form the centerpiece of this book. Champaklal began seeing visions in 1929. This book presents six of those visions, including three extraordinary ones at the Matrimandir, which he visited a number of times while it was under construction. They are accompanied by introductory and background material related to Champaklal’s life and service to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, a narrative related to Auroville and the Matrimandir, extracts from the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother on the symbolism in visions, and a few personal comments by Nirodbaran and other friends of Champaklal. The work is enhanced by a number of photographs, colour plates, and facsimiles of messages in the handwritings of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo.
Champaklal first met Sri Aurobindo in April, 1921. Two years later he joined the Ashram and became the faithful personal attendant of, firstly, Sri Aurobindo and, later, The Mother. Both held him in very high regard. In a letter of 1920, Sri Aurobindo wrote, “I do not want thousands or lakhs of disciples. It would be enough if I get a hundred men free from their petty egoism and ready to work as the instruments of the Divine.” The Mother was later to identify Champaklal as one of that hundred.
