Dear Devotees and well-wishers,
Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Today Guru Maharaja’s health kept improving at a very slow pace. Breathing exercises are continued but the medical staffs are still concerned in case there is a sudden deterioration as before. We want to remind everyone that although Guru Maharaja’s health shows positive signs, there are still serious risks that need to be overcome.
During these last two days, the hospital doctors have been gradually reducing the time Guru Maharaja uses the ventilator. Given the positive signs in his progress, tomorrow Guru Maharaja would be trialed to maintain his breathing without the use of such ventilator. We are hopeful that he is able to manage his breathing on his own to expedite his release from the ICU.
Within all this, we also want to reassure the devotees that the local doctors continue to provide the best treatment for him. We clearly understand that Guru Maharaja is under the protection of Krishna and it is ultimately His supreme willing that determines everything. We will keep you informed accordingly.
We are receiving several calls and messages asking for Guru Maharaja’s “real” situation. Please be assured that the health updates are prepared according to the information provided by Guru Maharaja’s local doctors and secretaries as an average of his condition on a 24-hour basis. The health team makes sure that the information made public about Guru Maharaja does not breach the confidentiality that his medical records deserve. As instructed by Guru Maharaja we share publicly the information in a way that respects his dignity as with any patient.
We are trying to give the most accurate picture of his day-to-day progress. However please bare in mind that things can improve, or vice versa, in a short period of time. We request devotees to please share these official health updates to keep disciples and well-wishers constantly informed. The team of servants truly appreciates your support during these difficult moments.
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.
We will keep you informed through www.jayapatakaswami.com, JPS App (available on both iPhone and Android), and twitter (@jayapatakaswami).
On Behalf of Guru Maharaja’s Health Team
