The Life Divine is a challenge

The justification for including Sri Aurobindo's philosophy under "the schools of Vedanta", if any justification were required, is that almost every page of The Life Divine is inspired by the creative vision of the seers of the Vedas and the sages of the Upanishads. As a free commentator on Vedanta, Sri Aurobindo comes after the great Acharyas of Vedanta, like Shankara, Ramanuja, Madhava, Vallabha and Nimbarka. The Life Divine is a challenge to the false notion that philosophy in India died after the 16th Century. Dr Chandradhar Sharma, A Critical Survey of Indian Philosophy, MLBD
