Know Thy Master – Champaklalji on his first impression on Sri Aurobindo

You once asked me what were my impressions when I first met Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. Well, it is difficult to describe them.

But I remember this much, that I felt I was in the presence of Shiva when I saw Sri Aurobindo. When I saw the Mother, I felt an extraordinary closeness to her and saw in her an embodiment of Beauty.

Now, after all these years of stay with them, the total impact on me is this:

Sri Aurobindo is a living example of complete surrender.

The Mother is a living example of perfect service to the Lord.
