Rhyme, rhythm, irony, suggestion: Even ordinary things of life found expression in his poetry. The mastery of His Holiness in Indian languages is well known to devotees. People of these states visit him to pay their respects and are naturally drawn by his amazing versatility in the languages together with a command over the local idiom. In on the day in which he was initiated into Sanyasa, His Holiness spoke in Kannada for the first time at the felicitation meeting with such a telling eloquence that all those present, including ministers, High Court judges, members of the Legislature and University professors, could not control their admiration while listening to him.
Enroute at Gobichettipalayam, the Acharya delivered a speech in chaste Tamil, electrifying the devotees as they had never expected such a clear language flow from someone whose language was not Tamil and who had not been taught Tamil by anyone. The eloquence with which he delivers speeches in Telugu, his mother tongue, is indeed a matter of rare experience.

Even scholars in Hindi language and literature were fascinated with his melodious Sanskritised Hindi. All his speeches have one thing in common. They are built brick by brick on a sound proposition.

Whenever Sri Mahasannidhanam spoke to Sri Sannidhanam, the latter would reverentially bend forward and listen. Whenever They walked together, Sri Sannidhanam would never over-step his Guru.
Whenever both of Them were to occupy Their seats, Sri Sannidhanam would wait for Sri Mahasannidhanam to be seated first. Sometimes when Sri Sannidhanam arrived a little later than Sri Mahasannidhanam to attend a function, He would pay his respects to His Guru first and only then take his seat.
