Champaklal (February 2, 1903 – May 9, 1992) was the devoted personal attendant to Sri Aurobindo and The Mother for over fifty years. He arrived at Pondicherry on 1921. From 1926 until 1938 he was the only other person apart from the Mother to see Sri Aurobindo on a daily basis.
While his service to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, helping devotees seeking the Mother's blessings, and various other tasks, took up much of his time, he still found time to paint, and he was encouraged in this by the Mother.
