Dear devotees, Namo Namaha. Jaya Srila Prabhupada!
Akincana.net has received the following information through H.G. Basu Ghosh Prabhu about the present condition of H.H. Rupa Raghunath Swami (LOK). H.G. Basu Ghosh Prabhu told Akincana today that
“Over the phone, he received a report on the present health situation of HH Rupa Raghunath Swami Maharaj (LOK).
Maharaj is 79 years old from Argentina, but from an Italian-speaking family – he preached for many years in Italy, and for the past 20 years has been preaching in Maharashtra, Gujarat, and on all-India Padayatra).”
H.G. Basu Ghosh Prabhu further informed that the medical report is not good. His lungs are 90% damaged, and chances of recovery are not good. He was somewhat stubborn not to have taken immediate treatment for the Covid-19 coronavirus infection. The hospital will do its best in the circumstances. I was told the doctors said, “why have you brought him so late”, and they are considering intubating him (putting him on a ventilator).
Devotees are requested to pray for the health and fast recovery of H.H. Rupa Raghunath Swami Maharaj.
