Pavitra

Pavitra1

Pavitra (so named by Sri Aurobindo) was one of the early disciples of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. Born Philippe Barbier Saint-Hilaire in Paris in 1894, he graduated from the Ècole Polytechnique with a degree in Engineering. After serving in the army in the first World War and working briefly as a junior engineer in Paris, he set on a spiritual quest that led him to Japan, China, Mongolia, and finally India.
There in Pondicherry in 1925 he met Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, and remained with them for the rest of his life. In 1951 the Mother appointed him director of the newly-founded Sri Aurobindo International University Centre. He served in this position for eighteen years, until his passing in 1969 at the age of seventy- five.
