Dear God Family, Disciples and well wishers of HH Jayapataka Swami Maharaja,

Today Guru Maharaj seemed fresher than yesterday and was communicating more eagerly.

Guru Maharaja heard the janamashtami message sent in by HH Bhakthi Purushottama Swami Maharaja and was happy.

Being Janamashtami Guru Maharaja read chapter 3 from Srila Prabhupada’s Krishna book. He honoured Ekadasi Italian prasadam for lunch after having fasted since last night for the tests that he underwent today.

Among the tests being carried out today, a biopsy of the kidney was done to check for any signs of rejection. Apart from the risk of infection, there is also a major risk of the rejection of the organ, which can happen at any time (but more probably in the first few months). The results of these tests will come in few days time. Let us pray intensely that there are no complications and Guru Maharaja’s recovery is not hampered in any way.

Let us be aware that the recovery period is very critical and the situation may change from day to day and that all what is in our hands is to keep the prayers going.

There have been many spiritual gatherings around the world, for the benefit of Guru Maharaja’s health and devotees have been praying for his quick recovery.

Kindly intensify prayers in each of your satsangas and dedicate the same for our Guru Maharaja. Please also post the same together with pictures in

We wish you all a very happy Nandotsava and Srila Prabhupada’s avirbhav celebrations.

On behalf of Health Team and JPS Seva Committee

Your Servant
Mahavaraha Das
