His speciality is his patience. Whoever disturbs him from his meditation or from his regular activities, he will not punish or curse them, but instead with a smiling face, he will ask the reason for them in disturbing him. With his sweet words and gentle nature, nobody will act as his enemy. They will appreciate him for his kindness and praise him for his high meditative power. It is also said that several Sukthas in the Rudram, were penned by Maharishi Kutsa.
