There were dozens of people at the hermitage that afternoon; some had just arrived. After Subramuniya left, Yogaswami quickly changed the tone of the gathering, leaving them no room to wonder or talk about what had happened. “He must be a dancer,” he chortled, “He moves like a borzoi (a Russian Wolf Hound).”
When he heard about the meeting, Kandiah knew what had occurred. He remarked to close friends, “Now it is finished. Swami has performed the coronation.” Everyone’s attitude toward Subramuniya changed as they began to regard him in a new light.
