Hare Krishna dear devotees,

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

Re: Health update of H.H.Bhakti Chaitanya Swami Maharaj

Maharaj had a Doppler ultrasound today which showed that he has Deep Vein Thrombosis(DVT) of his left lower limb (blood clots in the veins of the lower limbs). There are various contributing factors. The DVT has resulted in a pulmonary embolus and this is the reason for his breathing difficulty over the past few days. He is currently on treatment and will need to be for the next few months. The next few days are crucial to his recovery.

He is now fully off oxygen and is doing much better.

Thank you all for your prayers. Please continue to keep Maharaj in your prayers so that he makes an uneventful recovery.

Your servant,
Karunamayi Devi dasi
