Babaji health update
November 21, 2017

Dear Ones,

During this Thanksgiving season we give gratitude for our Fellowship and Satsang. Babaji's example and teachings of love and peace always inspire us, and we especially want to acknowledge it at this time. 

The fall has brought a significant decline to Babaji's physical activity. He is sleeping more, eating less, and needs much rest. In his brief time awake Babaji is alert and his eyes remain kind and responsive. His physicians say this change is normal and to be expected, and they continue to comment on the excellent care that Babaji receives.  

Please continue to send your thoughts and prayers on behalf of Babaji and his well being. Know you are welcome to join in the various Fellowship activities during this Holiday time.

Babaji's health continues to be stable while his "awake and active" time very gradually decreases. His presence continues to feel loving and accepting. 

Thanks to all who send prayers, positive thoughts, and financial support for Babaji's care.

August 2017

Dear Satsang and Babaji's Well Wishers,

Babaji’s presence continues to bless and inspire. The most noticeable difference in his health condition is reduced activity. It was recently decided that his care should be under the supervision of a palliative physician. He is stable, comfortable, alert and loving but his time awake is limited. He continues to enjoy his meals and some moments of playing balloon ball. 

As Babaji’s health continues to decline, many of us are asking about preparations to honor him at the time of his passing. Please know that all will be informed via this website, by email*, and by text via the Hanuman Fellowship Emergency Text** system, in the event that Babaji leaves his body. 

There will be places for us to gather for prayers, ritual observances and supportive satsang including Mount Madonna Center, Pacific Cultural Center, Sri Ram Ashram, Salt Spring Centre, and in Toronto. Information will be sent at the appropriate time. Per Babaji’s specific instructions we will observe all vedic rituals.

Your continued prayers for Babaji and our satsang are an honoring as well,

Babaji Caregiver Group and

Panchayat

Offering Gratitude to Our Teacher
July 05, 2017

Dear Fellowship and Satsang Friends and Community, 

As Guru Purnima approaches, we reflect on how we have been changed by knowing Baba Hari Dass, our beloved teacher, mentor, and friend. In the many ways he has influenced our lives, his examples of kindness and compassion are a constant theme. In honor of Guru Purnima, a time dedicated to offering gratitude to present and past teachers, we invite you to be a part of Babaji’s ongoing care.
 
Over the last few years, Babaji's daily care has been made possible through the generosity of many – Thank You! This support provides the best quality of life given his extreme physical limitations, which necessitate full assistance with every aspect of day to day life.
 
As Babaji’s health care needs continue, we ask for your continued help in providing the highest quality of care for him. We invite you to please make your contribution now.

Dear Friends,

As we prepare to celebrate Guru Purnima (July 8) it is an auspicious time to honor our beloved teacher with our prayers and well wishes. Please enjoy these photos from past celebrations. 

Babaji's condition is stable, although his age and health combine to greatly limit his activity. While there is a very gradual process of decline, Babaji's presence continues to inspire peace and love. 

May we always remember his teachings of unity of purpose and peace through service, spiritual practice, and the company of fellow seekers.

Babaji Health Update
March 30, 2017

Dear Friends,


In general, Babaji's health remains stable. He has had a cough recently, which has been improving. Babaji's exercise times are decreasing in length, while his resting periods are increasing, which his Doctor says is expected at Babaji's age and stage. A public celebration of Babaji's birthday will take place at MMC and the Hanuman Temple on Hanuman Jayanti, April 10th. 

Thank you for all your good wishes and prayers.

With love,
Babaji Care group

Babaji had a sweet celebration at his home on March 26th for his 94th "Ashram birthday." This is the date that his birthday has traditionally been celebrated at Sri Ram Ashram. His Ashram daughter, Prabha, attended along with a few other students and his caregiving attendants. His younger Ashram daughter, Soma wasn't able to come from LA, but joined in on Facetime.

Babaji Health Update
February 08, 2017

Babaji's health continues to be stable. His hours of sleep and rest continue to gradually lengthen, and his time of activity continues to gradually decrease. He still seems to enjoy whacking balloons with much focus and effort, yet he now wears out after 5 to 10 minutes. His eyes and facial expressions continue to be his means of communication. He is very observant of his surroundings and all who come within his sight. 

Thanks to everyone who has offered prayers, positive thoughts, and financial gifts. Your support is greatly needed and much appreciated.
