This department came into existence in 1950 in the Ashram main building,
a few days after Sri Aurobindo left his body. The devotees who came from
all over the world could get information about lodging, food, and the
Ashram activities from this department. Before leaving Pondicherry many
devotees started asking for the photographs of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother
and so they were kept here for sale. Before 1950, photographs were sold
only on Darshan days in the Ashram main building, in a stall that is kept
outside Poojalal's room. Today, different photographs of The Mother and
Sri Aurobindo in black and white or colour and in various sizes are available
for purchase in this department.
