Dear Devotees and well-wishers,

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

Guru Maharaja remains stable and slowly improving. He is in a private suite at the Delhi hospital where his assistants are able to attend to his particular needs. After being limited to a hospital bed for so long, it is imperative for him to restore his bodily strength and mobility. His day is about him resting, doing breathing exercises and physiotherapy. All the while his meditation is about Purushottama Month and the devotees.

Even though there is relief for his improvement, there is also the concern for his liver condition. Currently the group of devotee-doctors that supports Guru Maharaja’s medical treatment is discussing the next phase of his recovery. As mentioned earlier, there is the consideration of Guru Maharaja taking the assistance of Ayurvedic practitioners to address this issue.

As you could understand this has been a serious health crisis and the different alternative arrangements need to consider a long-term plan to prevent situations where Guru Maharaja’s health is at further risk. In other words, the fact is that Guru Maharaja may be out of the ICU but his liver condition demands a proactive approach of prevention and improvement. The hospital doctors may soon be giving a prognosis regarding the treatment and options for Guru Maharaja given his current condition. At this point, the focus is for him to be back where he was before this crisis started.

It is our intention to share with you a realistic picture of Guru Maharaja’s health condition, thus we are addressing these points. At the same, as it was mentioned by one of Guru Maharaja’s assistant today, we should be vigilant to the distorted thought, or misunderstanding that Guru Maharaja is “suffering”. In the words of Guru Maharaja, this would be a “mundane vision of the spiritual master”.

Today HH Gopal Krishna Maharaja, who has been taking care of Guru Maharaja since he came to Delhi, came to visit him again. They discussed about their dear Godbroyher, Brahmananda Prabhu and other topics. Maharaja always tries to make some time to visit Guru Maharaja, talk to the doctors, and arrange many facilities for us. Even before this crisis, during Nrsimha Caturdasi, he told Guru Maharaja that he should come and stay in Delhi. We are all very much indebt to HH Gopal Krishna Maharaja.

Please 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).

On Behalf of Guru Maharaja’s Health Team
