For the kind attention of all the devotees:
Please accept my dandavats pranams and receive heartly
blessings from Srila Gurudeva. All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga and all
glories to Sri Sri Radha Vinode Bihariji.
I am sure that most of you have already received the good news
that Srila Gurudeva has been released from the hospital last night. Yesterday at
10.30 AM a detailed scan was conducted on Srila Gurudevas heart region. This is
called an angiogram in medical terms. The doctors insert a special fluid in the
arteries by which they can observe whether there is any blockage in the arteries
that are directly providing blood and oxygen to the heart.
After 45 minutes the doctors came and informed us that there is
very positive news: there is no life threatening situation coming from the heart
condition. There is no need to perform any further treatment because the
arteries do not have any severe blockages. Although one of the 3 main arteries
is almost completely blocked, the other two are working very well. That
particular artery was already blocked since many years so this was not any new
discovery. With two arteries functioning well the heart receives sufficient
blood supply in order to do its important work.
As you know in 2002 Srila Gurudeva had a heart attack and at
that time one
was placed in the main artery of the two that are functioning well. This was
done in order to remove a severe blockage which was there at that particular
time. The blockage was removed by this procedure and in yesterdays test it
showed that the situation has remained exactly the same as it was in 2002 after
the placement of the stent. The doctors and all of us became very happy to know
I hope that this little report is helping you to understand
better what Srila Gurudevas heart condition is and that there is no immediate
risk in this regard. With Krishnas causeless mercy, proper medication and
adjusting the daily schedule we expect and hope that it will remain stable.
The doctors have given the green light for resuming traveling
within four or five days. Today we will sit and decide about our immediate
schedule. Please know that Srila Gurudeva will definitely come to Italy and meet
with all the wonderful devotees that will assemble there for the festival.
On behalf of Srila Gurudeva I am thanking you for your
heartfelt offerings, for your kind prayers, your favorable suggestions and your
words of support.
Aspiring for the service of Sri Guru and Vaisnavas
