Know Thy Master – Sri Aurobindo’s power of observation

When Mother came to Sri Aurobindo’s room for combing his hair, she informed him that there were six birthdays today.

Sri Aurobindo said to Mother: “Yes, Champaklal was working till late at night.” He used to note what I was doing. I was preparing the bouquets only after he retired for the night. I would sit in the meditation hall upstairs and do the work; at times it would go on up to 12 or 1 or 2 – on occasions it even went up to 3 a.m.

Sri Aurobindo would note everything. In fact, he once told us: “I am observing you all.”
