JPS Travel guidelines

Dear devotees,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All
glories to Guru Maharaja!

As you all know, Guru Maharaja is slowly recovering from the stroke which he
suffered almost two years ago. However, there is still much more recovery to
be done, before he can start travelling. He needs to undergo physio-therapy
treatment every single day, from a qualified therapist, and also use certain
equipment which is available only in a few places in the world.This has to
continue as long as he is showing improvement: if his therapy is stopped
even for 48 hours, he will regress, and then recovering again will be a far
more difficult task. Therefore, for devotees to contact Guru Maharaja
directly and invite him places him in a dilemma, as he does not like to
refuse anyone, and is eager to meet them.

Request from HH Bhakti Purushottama Maharaja

Dear Prabhus / Matajis,

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

His Holiness Jayapataka Swami Guru Maharaja is now getting treated in Los
Angeles. According to his secretary and personal doctor, his health is
improving but very slowly.

I had previously made an appeal to the devotees to chant extra rounds and
offer to the Lord for the speedy recovery of His Holiness’s health. Though
His Holiness has been saved from the very critical health crisis due to the
prayers and chanting of thousands and thousands of devotees around the world
still he has not yet recovered fully to travel and preach around the world
to fulfill the desire of his Guru maharaja, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila

At the time of the stroke in Mumbai when his health was at danger we had
come across with many astrologers. Many of their predictions regarding the
recovery of his health had come true.

GM’s health report by Sraddha DD

Continuity has proven to be the best therapy for Guru Maharaj. Though many
of you may think he is finally resting, Guru Maharaj is undergoing several
hours of various therapies daily. He sees physical, occupational, and speech
therapists daily and a visual therapist, a chiropractor, and a neurologist

When he is not being retrained in balance, walking, fine motor skills  and
other daily activities in the High Hopes facility (for 7 hours daily), Guru
Maharaj is training in a gym, in a pool or in his apartment. His unmatched
enthusiasm, the dedicated team of devotees and therapists, the continuity of
treatment, and all of your prayers are helping him in his recovery. His
progress is gradual, but is quite visible and inspiring.

A report by Guru Maharaja on his present health situation

Since the beginning of Dec and Jan I’ve been taking therapies in Southern
California. I’ve been graciously offered a quarter in the Los Angeles
Temple, New Dwarka, by Svavas prabhu, the temple president. He said that as
long as it takes I am welcome to stay for the therapies. Some of the
devotees attending me are staying in the quarter and some are in the
brahmacari and brahmacarini quarters.

The therapy is basically centered from Monday thru Thursday at the High
Hopes Head Injury Rehabilitation Program. There may be around 50 to 100
students at High Hopes. They are a Charitable Trust so they charge $2500 per
month, where as other places in North America seem to charge about $1000 a
day, more or less.

Message from HH Bhakti Purushottam Maharaja

Dear Prabhus/ matajis,

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

There is no remarkable improvement of Guru Maharaja’s health recently.

Different types of treatment has been done. I think now the time has again

come for us to take shelter of Lord’s holy name. As all of us know very

well, that only chanting of the holy name and prayers by the devotees around

the world has kept our Guru Maharaja with us. We should all try to chant

extra rounds for Guru Maharaja, for his quick recovery. Guru Maharaja wants

to preach vigorously, but due to his health situaton he is unable to do it.

We should all pray and chant extra rounds for Guru Maharaja so that he will

be physically fit to preach around the world like before.
