A mirror to everyone

Having observed Swami over the years, I have had many opportunities to see that he easily adapts to every characteristic of the person he is speaking with. When conversing with a young, fifteen-year old, he himself starts to assume the voice, gestures and behavior of a person of that age. The same can be said when he is conversing with a ninety year old man or woman. He moves like them and talks like them. I have noticed that even his facial expressions adapt to a person’s age. It seems to me that he acts like a mirror for people. He always uses a very specific mode of communication, uniquely tailored for each person and their character.
