The greatest tribute to Aurobindo can be found in a 'poem' dedicated to him by Rabindranath Tagore. Both Tagore and Aurobindo mastered Sanskrit and Puranas (Vedas, Upanishads...), and drew their inspiration about Indian civilization and nationhood from those ancient writings and wisdom, especially Upanishads. They were convinced that India can stand up to European hegemony on her own no matter what the odds were in political terms. Tagore never said a word about Ramakrishna. Tagore and Aurobindo fought for Indian independence for the sake of it, i.e. not as a political movement organisised by Gandhi. They both were deadly against Islam and the phoney "secularism" of Gandhi. I have read in Aurobindo's writings that he predicted Chinese agrression against India long before China invaded Tibet and cautioned Indian political masters about it. Alas, in my books, Congress under Gandhi's leadership ruined true India's great future by agreeing to partition under Biritish connivance to split India.  Aurobindo's philosophy and writings are stark in contrast to Koran and other Islamic teachings.

Aurobindo's articles in Bandemataram about passive resistance is a classic. Well reasoned articles filled with common sense and purpose. In contrast, Gandhi's Hind Swaraj on the same topic is pretty juvenile.
