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

By Krishna’s causeless mercy, Guru Maharaja was alert and looked fresh this morning. The pulmonologist met with our doctors and went thru Guru Maharaja’s reports and examined him. He seemed to be satisfied and happy with the current management related to the breathing.

Guru Maharaja also had an endoscopy today to check his ulcers. The ulcers are small and healing but they also found some enlarged blood vessels and that may be the cause of the reducing hemoglobin. Further tests will be done to determine if they are from pre-surgery period.

Every day is a challenge for the ground team to maintain a strict routine for Guru Maharaja and also deal with surprises on the way. We have seen many positive steps to recovery but this is a critical period. Guru Maharaja has to go through so much pain and trouble which cannot be elucidated in this report. So many tests, procedures, being on fast and liquid diets and most of all confined to the ICU which is the biggest austerity for Guru Maharaja.

Guru Maharaja is tolerating all these and going through them only for the love he has for Srila Prabhupada and all of us. Let us all unite and beg Lord Sri Krishna and Srila Prabhupada to help Guru Maharaja out of this situation and be back on the preaching field soon.

Kindly get together, pray intensively and post details on www.jayapatakaswami.com to please Guru Maharaja. You may also want to distribute Srimad Bhagavatam sets to your family and known circles as is the desire of our Guru Maharaja.

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