S has left a new comment on your post "The Crucification of Sri Aurobindo by His Devotees...":
Very timely post, Dave.D. The person I remember when I read this post is Champaklal Ji - humble, lovely, innocent, simple embodiment of love and service. When he said that he wanted to wash Sri Aurobindo's Dhoties, (that was way back in the 1920s when he first entered the portals of the Ashram) Sri Aurobindo warned him that he would be laughed at. The last moments of Sri Aurobindo in His mortal frame bring tears to my eyes - He embraced this wonderful Champaklal and kissed him.
Champaklal Ji never tolerated any insult or slander against the master. Wonder what the pseudo spirituo-intellectuals would have to say to that!!!
Thank God, Champaklal ji is not there to suffer the barbs of the self appointed critics of the Ashram, devotees and those who in their own way serve the cause of the Mother and the Master.He also serves who stands and waits! Posted by S to Savitri Era Open Forum at 7:55 PM, November 14, 2008
