ISKCON devotees continue monitoring HH Bhakti Caru Swami’s fight with coronavirus with medical updates posted every twelve hours. All past week doctors were preparing to move maharaja from the ventilator but in the end it still didn’t happen. During this time maharaja was sedated but doctors eventually took him off the drugs and he regained consciousness for a few minutes. The image of him at this time was too heartbreaking to be kept on official ISKCON news sites, you can see it as a small insert here. So far he is the highest profile victim among the devotees – only a couple of years ago he was GBC chairman and he is easily one of the most recognizable names. Extremely soft and respectful to everyone, an epitome of humility, he is known both for his preaching and for his beautiful Bengali bhajans. In the past few years he has dedicated his time to developing a cow care project in Florida, investing his time and energy into building a community and supporting infrastructure.
