Dear God-family, disciples and well-wishers of Guru Maharaja

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

Though we are through with the surgery, which was very crucial, we are now entering a more important and challenging phase. The next few months are going to be challenging and everyday we have to see that Guru Maharaj makes progress towards recovery and remain free from infection.The doctors, nurses, Guru Maharaja’s sevadharis, ground team and a lot of devotees are struggling hard to see that this challenging phase is gone through safely.

So we request devotees to continue prayers more intensly since that is the real medicine for Guru Maharaja

As of this evening Guru Maharaja is still kept under sleep with medication. His vital parameters are being closely monitored. Kidney is yet to start functioning normally. Guru Maharaja’s doctor was allowed to see him very briefly.

The hospital(s) have indicated that NO VISITORS WILL BE ALLOWED for the next 30 days. Please refrain from coming to the hospital. Instead, you may kindly send videos and reports of activities in your congregations that can be posted on and this will please Guru Maharaja. This will enable Guru Maharaja to remain connected with you in this recovery period and will help him get well faster.

We want to make sure you are informed with the latest and bona fide news about our Guru Maharaja and are doing our best. Please avoid sharing any messages/articles/pictures/videos that you may receive from your friends or acquaintances. These unauthorized messages can sometimes give you incomplete/incorrect information and may create unnecessary panic or emotions. If you receive any such messages, kindly delete them immediately in the best interest of Guru Maharaja and all his disciples. Your help and cooperation in this regard will go a long way to ensure that only authentic information is distributed about Guru Maharaja.

Guru Maharaja thanks all those who have been praying for him and his health and is touched by the wonderful messages he has from all his God Brothers and leaders of ISKCON worldwide.

We will keep you posted on the progress over the next few weeks on a DAILY BASIS at 2000 hours IST.

On behalf of the Health Team and JPS Seva Committee,

Maha Varaha Das
