  • written a monumental epic like Savitri
  • created a synthetic metaphysics like The Life Divine
  • written history to create a new historiography
  • formulated a new hermeneutics
  • speculated on philology
  • translated and gave new interpretations to the Veda, Upanishads, and the Gita
  • challenged the Buddhists and Shankara to give Integral non-dualism
  • wrote on ethics, aesthetics, and literary criticism
  • wrote poems, plays, and short stories
  • devised a new theory of education
  • did fiery journalism against foreign rulers
  • led freedom struggle and went to jail
  • forsook material comforts and family life
  • offered spiritual guidance to hundreds of his disciples
  • meticulously recorded his spiritual experiences
  • spent 24 years within his room
