Conversations with Sri Aurobindo

Conversations with Sri Aurobindo by Pavitra

Conversations with Sri Aurobindo

“Conversations with Sri Aurobindo” is Pavitra’s personal diary where he was recording his meeting with Sri Aurobindo which were held from December 18, 1925 to November 20, 1926. Book starts from the description of the first meeting of Pavitra with Sri Aurobindo. Each entry of this unique diary revals new depths of wisdom and yogic experience which Sri Aurobindo shares with his disciple. Pavitra, a French engineer of the Polytechnic School, arrived at Pondicherry on the 17th of December, 1925, having come from a Mongolian lamasery where his spiritual search had driven him, after his having spent four years in Japan. He never left Pondicherry again, where he lived for forty-four years in the service of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. He left his body on May 16, 1969. These brief conversations were noted from memory, most of the time in French, except towards the end. Hence, they do not represent the exact words of the Master, but are as faithful a record as possible. Pavitra was then 31 years old.
