End of day 56 post liver and kidney transplants
22:00 Hrs. (Indian standard time)
Update #66

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

By Krishna’s mercy, Guru Maharaja has been stable the past two days. His parameters are still up and down and it is expected to take some more time to be at desirable levels. His diet and medication are being closely monitored and reported to his doctors, and according to requirements they are being adjusted. Slowly new dishes are being added to give some variety to Guru Maharaja.

Guru Maharaja is continuing his exercises on the spirometer before every meal and one hour of physiotherapy in the morning with the visiting physiotherapist. His checkup got postponed and there is a possibility he will go tomorrow to the hospital.

Just a reminder that Guru Maharaja had his last dialysis on 25th of September and its day 13 post decannulation. These are important milestones in the recovery of Guru Maharaja but let us not become relaxed, with more intense and sincere prayers and a successful Damodhar month we can help speed up this progressive trend to continue and get better by the day.

To share some exciting news Guru Maharaja has been trying to work on his speech and, he was testing his voice, preparing himself to give class soon. He spoke for 11 minutes. Watch this space for more information on the first post-surgery darshan and class.

*In the Skanda Purana, it is mentioned as follows:*

*1.“As Satya yuga is the best of yugas (ages), as the Vedas are the best of scriptures, as Ganga is the best of rivers, so Kartika is the best of months, the most dear to Lord Sri Krishna.”*

*2.”When one offers a ghee lamp during the month of Kartika his sins in many thousands and millions of births perish in half an eyeblink.”*

Many devotees are doing wonderful things and inspiring us. Sridhar Gaura Bhakta Prabhu had made 10,000 wicks for use during the Damodhar month by engaging 3 other devotees.

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 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 12.10.2018*
