End of day 54 post liver and kidney transplants
22:30 Hrs. (Indian standard time)
Update #65

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

By Krishna’s mercy, in the last two days Guru Maharaja has been alert. Night sleeps have been better. It is day 12 post decannulation and he is tolerating very well. He has been coughing out his mucus well and has been trying to do his best on the spirometer. Today the cardio-pulmonary physiotherapist visited. He is quite confident that Guru Maharaja will regain his core muscle power soon.

Thanks to all your prayers, Guru Maharaja’s blood parameters are slowly moving towards normalcy, though it will take a little time. Guru Maharaja is following his routine – eating following the doctors’ advice and taking as much rest as possible. He is due for his scheduled check up tomorrow.

Let us all pray intensively that Guru Maharaja progresses well towards his recovery. The sooner Guru Maharaja recovers, the faster he would be able to fulfill his commitments to Srila Prabhupada, including the grand opening of Mayapur TOVP at the earliest. Let us all please him by congregating more and praying intensively, posting details of these programs together with photos, audio and video on

The month of Karthik is fast approaching. In the Padma Purana, Uttara Khanda 112.3, Lord Krishna says, “Of all plants, the sacred Tulasi is most dear to me, of all months, Karthik is most dear, of all places of pilgrimage, My beloved Dwaraka is most dear, and of all days, Ekadasi is most dear.” So, let us increase our austerities for the pleasure of Lord Damodhar in this most merciful month for the speedy recovery of our Guru Maharaja as well and post on –our extra rounds of Chanting, Narasimha Kavachas, Tulasi Pranams, Damodhar aartis, making aarti wicks etc.

Please note that the next update will be on 10.10.2018
