Note from Swamiji, sent to the community:
You may forward this to anyone you want to. This is nothing very serious, but still, something to be aware of. After all, I am 85 years old now.
I’ve been feeling very tired, especially in my heart. People say I look “radiant” in the Gita video recordings. Well, thank God for small favors, but I have to say it isn’t easy to do as much as I’ve done in the past. Agasthya predicted six more years of life for me. Well, we shall see.
I went to a cardiologist today. He told me my heart is pumping at, maximum, 25% efficiency. It has been 50% in the past. He says it doesn’t move much. He showed his hand, barely moving the fingers inward, never closing.
The problem, it seems, will be at last partially resolved if I can reduce the fluid in my body quite a bit more. I’m going to take much more diuretics, also intravenously. My weight may go to less than 140 lbs. Now it is in the high 140s. I already look like a skeleton. My upper arm isn’t much thicker than my wrist. But there’s too much weight around my abdomen.
I must greatly reduce the amount of work I do. Probably I shouldn’t record more than five TV shows a day. People take a lot of energy out of me. I should give less energy on that level. I need to walk a little more, but not too much.
I am not at all afraid of death. Rather, I look forward to it. But if Master still needs me here, I am happy hang in there as long as he needs me. I can only add, I would like to live usefully. I don’t feel I am being very useful just now, but still, I am doing something. And five programs a day is still something.
My love to all of you,
Note from Narayani and Miriam:
We humbly ask your prayers for Swamiji at this time. This afternoon we went to the cardiologist for a test on his heart. It is pumping less efficiently than it does normally. It seems that reason is due to much fluid in his body, as often in the past, which Miriam( backing by Dr. Peter) are taking care of the situation very well. The cardiologist recomended Swamiji a stronger medicine which will help hem to reduce the fluid and make his heart stronger (don’t ask me why! I am far away of medical understanding!!!) If everything goes well (which it will), in 3-4 days his heart’s efficiency should improve again. He plans to continue recording tomorrow. This is why we are “SO SURE” that our prayers are going to change the whole situation and make him feel stronger and younger than ever! May the Divine Mother Healing Energy flow through all of us so we can gave it to Swamiji. Everything comes from God, and everything goes to God! Thank you all…..we´ll keep you posted!
