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

Guru Maharaja is working very hard continuing his breathing and physical exercises and is also trying to increase his calorific intake. Today the dietician has introduced a new high protein supplement. Guru Maharaja’s hemoglobin is holding up and other parameters are still up and down as we wait for the kidney to pick up its full function. Guru Maharaja had a rough night yesterday but a successful one with very little ventilator support. He was able to manage his CO2 levels by Krishna’s mercy.

For Guru Maharaja himself and the team of doctors, tomorrow is a very important day when Guru Maharaja is going to be decannulated (the process whereby a tracheostomy tube is removed). This would mean more mobility for Guru Maharaja, he can eat better and also his speech will improve.

Let us all pray intensely that this happens successfully tomorrow and that we will not need to put this tube back again. Worldwide prayers are being requested for tomorrow. Please join together, pray intensely and kindly do post details on for pleasing Guru Maharaja.

Let us vehemently pray to Almighty Lord Sri Krishna, the Supreme Personality, for Guru Maharaja’s fastest recovery so that his desires to fulfill Srila Prabhupada’s dreams & instructions materialize soon.

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