In one sense he was really a man of the world: he knew the world, he knew everything, and he was able to relate to the world in every possible way. But at the same time he was completely from another world and he was able to convey that to us in the simplest way, and as he would say, ‘heart to heart’, in a ‘heart to heart’ way. It wasn’t so much about the theory, although he knew that better than anybody, but just in his dealings with everybody we saw spiritual life in reality. I think that this is his unique contribution.
