ISKCON News has received the following update on ISKCON-guru Jayapataka Swami's health from his disciples:
"On October 6th, Jayapataka Maharaja was admitted at the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS) in Delhi. Maharaja was admitted due to fluid retention in his body because of a weak liver.
ILBS is one of the best institutes in the world to deal with liver related complications. The Director of the hospital, Professor Sarin, is a world-renowned liver specialist and is personally treating Maharaja.
Over the last few days several tests were conducted to assess Maharaja’s liver condition, as well to drain the water out from his body.
Some latest test has showed that Maharaja’s veins in his stomach have become enlarged, which in future may cause bleeding and could be very serious. So, in-order to avoid that doctors are proposing few treatments.
Many liters of water have so far been drained and his condition is improving. In general his health is stabilizing, which is very important for the next stage of his liver treatment.
We have also been able to secure a new medicine, which promise to kill the virus and prevent further damage to his liver. This is very good news!
Maharaja has been making quick recovery and we have high hopes that he will be active again soon. We have world-renowned doctors treating and assisting him and there is nothing to worry about.
Due to this situation, Jayapataka Maharaja will remain in Delhi area for a while until he is completely out of any danger.
We understand many of you are very worried and to keep all of you updated we would be posting regular health updates at: news.iskcon.org and fb.com/jayapatakaswami
