His habits are abstemious; he remains without food of any kind till 1 p.m. and then lunches; he is said to have coffee and biscuits in the evening and retires without any further food. He has been a bachelor all along, walks a few miles a day on an empty stomach, speaks little and is very graceful in his movements. His voice is low and soft and his words appear to come from the heart. He has friends among whom might be counted the late Sir John Woodroffe, Sir Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan and Prof. Thomas, Sanskrit Professor in Oxford University.

彼の生活習慣は節制したものである。彼は午後一時までは何も食べずに過ごし、その後に昼食をとる。彼は夕方になるとコーヒーとビスケットを食べ、それ以上は何も食べないで部屋に戻る。彼は、ずっと独身で、毎日空っぽの胃で数マイル歩き、ほとんど喋ることはないが、その動きはいたって優雅である。彼の声は低く柔らかく、彼の言葉は心の底から出ているようだ。彼の友人の中には、故Sir John Woodroffe氏、Sir Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan氏、そしてオックスフォード大学のサンスクリット語の教授であるThomas氏がいる。
