Dear Devotees and well-wishers,

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Guru Maharaja’s health is stable but he still had to continue with the ventilator today. Guru Maharaja couldn’t completely breath for the whole day on his own to a safe level due to still having some phlegm in his chest. The process is that every day he uses the ventilator for shorter periods of time and at a scheduled time this is reduced. All that this means is that he will need more days to be totally off the ventilator.

Otherwise Guru Maharaja is totally conscious and communicating through an alphabet chart. He has a regular program where early in the morning, a Govardhana Sila is brought to him for darshan, then he has tilak placed on his body and from then on he continues with the regular program provided by the hospital; breathing exercises and so on.

We understand that this is a long waiting process but Guru Maharaja is determined to carry on with this process. As soon as his secretaries and doctors are able to enter ICU in the morning, he starts commanding his instructions regarding his personal care and treatment.

The health team extends its gratitude to those devotees who are encouraging us through their phone calls, messages and prayers. We all are moved by the massive amounts of support shown from devotees around the world.
Please continue to send your offerings to and we will make sure Guru Maharaja will be reported on this as soon as possible. We humbly request you to continue your sincere prayers and chanting for his fast recovery.

We will keep you informed through, JPS App (available on both iPhone and Android), and twitter (@jayapatakaswami).
