Upon learning that His Holiness Jayapataka Swami has tested positive for Covid-19 I posted this reaction:

“Hare Krsna. Pamho. AGTSP!

I have just recovered myself from covid-19 , although many symptoms take months to get rid of . During my illness Maharaja cared for me, sending me messages, prayers and having doctors he knew contact me. His love and concern for all souls is boundless. He is truly Srila Prabhupada’s Ambassador here in earth! We can’t imagine how to repay our debt to him.
One thing I learned from my experience with Covid is this: Prayers from all Vaisnavas work! They reach up to Srila Prabhupada and Sri Šrí PancaTattva. I believe I’m alive because of the devotees’ prayers.

Please, everyone, offer the most fervent sincere prayers for His Holiness Jayapataka Swami to recover. The souls of this world desperately need him, as do we all.  

I beg to remain his eternal aspiring servant,
Ramesvara dasa “
