Sri Aurobindo has turned only to Indian sources to corroborate his arguments

Aurobindo Ghose was a major nationalist intellectual of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries who rose to prominence as one of the most radical leaders of the Swadeshi movement before retreating to the French colony of Pondicherry to dedicate his life to spiritual exercises and experiments. Aurobindo, like so many others of the nationalist period, produced a major commentary on the Bhagavad Gita. I will argue that his appeal to the Gita in the late 1910s represented, however, not a continuation of his nationalist project, but rather a radical reformulation of it in the wake of the defeat of the Swadeshi mobilization of 1905–8.

In Western philosophy concepts of "mind" and "consciousness" are usually reciprocal, but their distinction is vital to Sri Aurobindo's thought. The second point is that at every critical stage in his thinking, Sri Aurobindo has turned only to Indian sources to corroborate or evidence his arguments. Thus his vision is grounded in a distinctly non-Euro-centric tradition, ...
