The sage was known to be compassionate to people who suffered.

At the same time he refused to help those who would not do their part to resolve their problems. He would be direct and unsparing in his responses to them.

“Sometimes compassion comes in the form of a kick in the rear,” is how he would explain his approach.
(Francis J Valloor: A Dewdrop in the Ocean. Mumbai: Awareness Arc, 2009. pg. 154)
