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.

As many of you have heard through reliable sources, Srila Gurudeva is at the moment in the hospital. There is every reason to be happy and relieved because there is no major problem. We did not want to take any risk and that is why we admitted Srila Gurudeva on Tuesday morning in Fortis hospital, New Delhi. This is a new, premium class, state-of-the-art hospital. The team of doctors are familiar with Srila Gurudeva's physical health condition and have been very helpful to analyze the problem, bring immediate relief and expert treatment.

What happened is that Sunday evening Srila Gurudeva went to take rest and after one hour he felt extremely uneasy, with pain on his left side. We called a doctor in the middle of the night, visited the emergency department and made an X-ray. The doctor diagnosed that there was a blockage in the intestines and advised to make another test in Delhi in order to assess the exact location and reason of this blockage.

In Delhi hospital the doctors ran more tests, saw the results and concluded that the left kidney was inflamed due to a kidney stone. The enlarged, inflamed kidney placed pressure upon the intestines which was blocked due to this pressure. By the time that all the test results were presented to us, the stone had already left the kidney and thus there was no need to perform any special treatment other than resting and carefully starting to drink and take meals. This was as of yesterday noon time. Today this morning, Srila Gurudeva was in best spirits, full smile and ready to start his writings as soon as is possible. He ordered me to give his profuse heartly blessings to all of you and convey that he is alright and very happy to know that many of you will attend Sri Vraja Mandal parikrama this year.

I will certainly keep you informed about any further developments. The doctors expect that Srila Gurudeva may leave the hospital today or tomorrow, very soon.

Aspiring for the service of Sri Guru and Vaisnavas
