Gurumaharaja health update

Dear Devotees

Please accept our humble obeisances.

All Glories to Srila Gurumaharaj !
All Glories to Jagatguru Srila Prabhupad !

Srila Gurumaharaj flew from Indore to Delhi on 29th March and on the same day we started for Haridwar for the ‘Vaishnava Snana- Vaishnava Bathing’ next day during Kumbha Mela. We went to Haridwar in a taxi. It was a very long trip and a very tiring one too. We reached
Haridwar after a very hectic 8 hour road trip on 29th evening. The Kumbha Mela festivities were going on in full swing there and the constant sounding of loud speakers kept Gurumaharaj awake almost all night. Early next morning Gurumaharaj went for Mangla Arati, then around 5:30 am we all left on foot for the Maha Snana at the Har-ki- Poudi (The steps to Hari). Gurumaharaj lead a powerful kirtan and all danced in great joy.

At Har-ki-Poudi Gurumaharaj was the first to start the Vaishnav Snana by bathing in the Ganga. He sprinkled Ganga water at us all and purified us with his loving smiles. After returning, again on foot, Gurumaharaj gave the morning class to all assembled devotees.Immediately after that we had prasadam. Gurumaharaj was feeling very tired by now and tried to sleep but in vain pertaining to the loud noises from the loudspeakers all around.

After his return to Delhi the same day Srila Gurumaharaj felt very tired and exhausted and took some rest to get ready for the RGB/GBC meetings starting the next morning.

On the second day of meetings Srila Gurumaharaj felt very tired and sleepless the night before. He felt very uneasy and complained of pain in his left shoulder. We suggested to have an ECG done to find out if it is a heart related issue. The ECG came normal and the doctor suggested the same. His Holiness Srila Gopal Krsna Goswami Maharaj organized and over looked the whole thing. Srila Gopal Krsna Maharaj requested Srila Gurumaharaj to address his health with urgent attention and also recommended Dr. Ashok Seth, one of the best Cardiologists of India, at Escorts Heart Center here in Delhi. Through his disciple His Grace Dr Krsna Priya Prabhu, Maharaj arranged for more tests and investigation.

An Eco Cardio Graph was also undertaken. The report for this also has come normal. Further an Isotope Scan was also undertaken.

Dr. Seth has now suggested us to go for an Angiography to find out the current health status of Srila Gurumaharaj’s heart. We are going to Escorts tomorrow morning at 9 am IST. Based on the report of the Angiography, Srila Gurumaharaj has conscented to undergo an Angioplasty if the blockage in the heart is found excessive during the Angiography. If that is the case then the Angioplasty will be perfomed at around 1 pm here tomorrow.

We request all devotees and well-wishers of our beloved Gurumaharaj to kindly pray for the well-being of our beloved Srila Gurumaharaj.

Yours in service of Srila Prabhupad
Ganga Narayan Das
