Dear Devotees and well-wishers,
Guru Maharaja was successfully airlifted from Kolkata hospital to the specialized hospital in Delhi last night. We apologize for not having been able to send a report to everyone earlier. Please understand that travelling and organizing the logistics required to bring Guru Maharaja and his team to Delhi took some time and energy.
The original plan was to continue his liver treatment in Delhi after Narsimha Chaturdasi. However on May 10th, an emergency condition was brought about due to complications with his liver and the repercussion that this condition has on his breathing. Guru Maharaja’s health condition was initially stabilized after arriving at the Kolkata hospital. Although Guru Maharaja seemed improving, on May 13th morning Guru Maharaja’s health (breathing, etc) showed signs of deterioration. We consulted with Guru Maharaja’s head doctor, Dr. Sarin and he suggested the best option was to airlift him to Delhi. Immediately we made the arrangements for an air-ambulance.
In the morning of May 13th, in Kolkatta, Guru Maharaja was put on a breathing device to assist his breathing. After this, he responded well and was conscious and all signs were back to normal. Due to the tubing in his mouth he couldn’t talk but was totally conscious and coherent communicating with us, responding to our queries regarding the course of action and treatment.
Later that day, upon arrival in Delhi, Guru Maharaja was placed in ICU to maintain close observation on his progress. He is directly under the supervision of Dr. Sarin, who said, “Don’t worry, Guruji is a strong man”. Due to the exertion of the transportation from Kolkata and in order to aid his body to stabilize further, Guru Maharaja is given total rest at the hospital. All his signs are reporting positively and this morning he showed even further improvement in his condition.
Currently he is supported “on the ground” by two devotee doctors. On top of that, there is a team of disciple-doctors who are being consulted all the while through skype, whatsapp and over the phone.
Many devotees around the world are reporting of organized special pujas, kirtans, and sangas to pray for Guru Maharaja’s health and well-being. Please send your offerings to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure Guru Maharaja will be reported on this as soon as possible. We humbly request you to continue your sincere prayers and chanting for his fast recovery.
