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

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

After admitting Guru Maharaj in the ICU at 7 pm last night, he had difficulties in breathing with his own effort, so with the concern of all the doctors he was intubated (on ventilator support) in the middle of the night.

That helped him to stabilise his parameters and he slept well throughout the night. At about 9 in the morning they started weaning him off the ventilator. So now Guru Maharaj is breathing on his own.

In the past it was a big challenge for Guru Maharaj to breath on his own post extubation though right now he is doing relatively fine. So we humbly request devotees to keep praying sincerely and intensely so that Guru Maharaj could overcome this great challenge.

Other vital parameters are stable and satisfying. Fever has subsided. He is conscious. We are waiting for the investigation report to come. He is still in the ICU, where he will be kept for the next 24 hours for close observation.

Just now Guru Maharaj has started chanting his rounds.

On behalf of Guru Maharaja’s Health Team & JPS Seva Committee,

Maha Varaha Das
