{{diary|''With a foraging party outside of Thanjavur, we came upon a mob of men harassing a monk. They jeered and harangued him, but the presence of Emperor Chola's scouts calmed the crowd, but only momentarily. I demanded to the name of their village: I would know who raises their children to attack holy men. The crowd roared, a voice, close to the monk, but still unseen, yelled that this man was a demon, blaspheming against Ganesh. Control was lost and the crowd became violent. Our meager numbers could not contain this without spilling blood. They laid hands on the monk, who adopted a look of serenity. They tore at his robes and crushed his begging bowl underfoot and he did not make a sound.''

''But a child did cry out. Attracted by the noise, she was dragged into the mob from the periphery as the violence turned these villagers into a rumbling mass. Seeing the girl in danger, the monk transcended, and in that moment, I understood the villagers (sic) fear, but felt awe. The monk was of giant stature, topped with the head of an elephant, and the strength to match. The villagers closest were scattered by mighty limbs. This man-and-beast reared back and trumpeted a terrible war cry scattering the rest. The giant in a manner astonishingly gentle, scooped up the girl, and walked to the trees. Something possessed me to ask where he was going. A booming voice answered, "to (sic) my temple, where we will heal her. If you come, come unarmed."''
