Update on Swami Chidanandaji's Health (May 6th, 2002)


Pujya Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj stayed in the Ashram for almost 3 months after His return from the Orissa Conference. During this entire period Pujya Swamiji everyday attended the morning meditation talks. And it was the most unique experience for all those who were present during these period at the Holy Sivananda Ashram, Rishikesh.

Towards the end of March, Swamiji Maharaj shifted to Dehradun to take rest planning to come back by Ramanavami to the Ashram. But Swamiji Maharaj's heart developed certain condition, for which Doctors advised to take complete bed rest for two months.

Pujya Swamiji Maharaj is now under strict medication of a cardiologist of Dehradun. With God & Gurudev's grace and fervent prayers of the devotees from all over, Swamiji Maharaj is slowly recovering. As everyone is aware, Swamiji Maharaj has a bird's stomach and had been eating food very little, now He is taking nothing but little buttermilk and some curd. That is all for the 24 hours. Swamiji at the present mostly stays in His room taking rest, reading books. Around mid day Swamiji comes out from His room on a wheel chair along with the sevaks to take a few strolls around the building surrounded by lush green garden for fresh air and sun. After few strolls, Swamiji Maharaj comes back into the drawing room and sits together with all the sevaks and Retd. Brigadier Sabherwal ji, a longstanding ardent devotee and now a Trustee of the DLS Trust, for about half an hour talking and sharing various subjects like Ashram administration, guidelines, current affairs and sometimes sharing Jokes.

Though Swamiji Maharaj is physically very very weak and feels very tired, exhausted all the time, HE is HIS usual self.

Here are few pictures taken very recently capturing Swamiji in different moods.

We request all the devotees to pray for Swamiji Maharaj's good health and well being.

Hari Om!

Om Namo Bhagavate Sivanandaya!

Swami Yatidharmananda
