Dear Devotees and well-wishers,

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Guru Maharaja’s health today is much better, yet he is still on the ventilator that assists his breathing. The lungs look clearer and the bacteria that were causing the pneumonia disappeared in the last 24 hours. Also his kidneys showed improvement and overall he is more comfortable. So today is a day of hope.

Yet, the biggest challenge is to remove the ventilator due to the previous experience of him being unable to maintain his breathing up to a safe level. Today he practiced breathing by himself while still connected to the ventilator. He is improving but by night, he felt quite fatigued. So, for the past 2 days there are signs of improvement. Let us intensify our prayers that it continues that way and Guru Maharaja can come off the ventilator. The doctors are carefully monitoring his response and hopefully this time Guru Maharaja will be able to recover fully.

Please send your offerings to 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.

We will keep you informed through, JPS App (available on both iPhone and Android), and twitter (@jayapatakaswami).
