Dear God Family, Disciples and well-wishers of H. H. Jayapataka Swami Maharaja,

As it was reported yesterday, Guru Maharaja had an endoscopy done. This showed a bleeding ulcer- that has now been resolved and the doctors were able to stop the bleeding. Today the doctors had to repeat the endoscopy procedure to check if the bleeding had stopped completely. By the Lord’s mercy the bleeding has stopped, so let us all pray that this procedure will help Guru Maharaja to have a continuous and speedy recovery.

Guru Maharaja has not had any food orally since the endoscopy last night and his fasting needs to continue till tomorrow morning as per the doctors’ instructions. Guru Maharaja is asking for something to drink and the servants are wetting his mouth with wet swabs. He has been on ventilator almost the whole day. His breathing is still a major issue. The biopsy report has not come yet but it is expected any time.

Due to the above, the dialysis which was scheduled for today was not done and it is rescheduled for tomorrow.

On the occasion of being Ekadasi today and Vamana Dvadasi tomorrow, kindly organize more congregational programs to intensify the prayers for the recovery of Guru Maharaja. Please post these details on since this will really please him.

On behalf of the Health Team and JPS Seva Committee,
Your Servant
Mahavaraha Das
