The expanse of his work is massive. Two of his mega-volumes, namely The Encyclopedia of Indian biographies and the Encyclopedia of (Sacred) places are a testimony to this fact. These works also demonstrate how large knowledge bases can be handled with poise, due discipline and a definite vision.
I appreciate the labour, consistency and studious pursuit he demonstrated while establishing himself as studious commentator of the Vedas.
His flexible, non-assuming and reform oriented studious nature has also inspired me. He hails from the reformist tradition of thought, propagated by Wai based Kevalanand Saraswati.These were the people who always sought the freedom of true knowledge from the constraints of orthodoxy and a non compassionate style. I have always strived for this liberal attitude to reflect in my work.
