It is debatable whether Sri Aurobindo's work can be called Vedantic at all (if one was to take the Mother's formulation of it)

And where has Sri Aurobindo (or the Mother) said that his work is dependent on the Vedanta?
His interpreting the Veda, the Vedanta and the Gita does not make his work dependent on these. Where possible, he has also coined a new language. The Life Divine does not mention avatar or the sacrifice of the Purusha (as far as I know).

If other works do, we must take it that these concepts are handy to express what is important to his experience and woul have taken many more volumes of words otherwise. Again, the essence of "incarnation" as understood in Christianity does not find any representation in the Indic idea of avatarhood. But Sri Aurobindo sees some truth in the idea and brings it out in Savitri. It is debatable whether his work can be called Vedantic at all (particularly if one was to take the Mother's formulation of it). 9:09 AM
