Mahabuddhi has recently experienced a tragedy while doing service at the Alachua Florida temple. He took a fall and the whole force of the fall went right on his head and cracked his skull which created a very bad brain injury and trauma. He was unconscious at the scene of the accident Monday, June 25 when he was immediately brought to the hospital and still unconscious presently.
We hope he will regain consciousness in the next week or two and it will be a very long road for recovery. The type of rehabilitation he will need outside normal rehab will be very costly. For all who do not know him he is a disciple of Srila Prabhupada from the early 70’s.
He served mostly in New Vrindavan and the last 29 years in Florida. He is the most friendly soul and all who know him really love him. He has always been willing to serve and do whatever he can for others on a daily basis for years with a nice attitude and never a harsh word for anybody.
For many years he has been the face of the Krishna lunch at the Santa Fe College organizing cooking and serving out. Even his caregiver in the trauma center said while he was in school Mahabuddhi would serve him lunch every day and they would eat together and he says now it is his chance to serve him.
Unfortunately Mahabuddhi has no savings or money to speak of and right now no voice so I am trying to be his voice and ask everyone if it is at all possible to give anything you can so we can give him the best rehabilitation. A large percentage of people with this kind of brain injury have a long struggle to try to recover 100% The treatment we are trying to give him that is not covered by insurance, as well as whatever the professionals in the hospital do, is called quantum neurology.
We have the best doctor right here in Gainesville to administer this neurological application. Along with that treatment he will also have to come up with some co payments for hospital care because it will not be 100% covered by insurance, although most of it will.
We are hoping by the time he does the first course which will take him through the end of the year that he will be recovered enough that we can continue after that without much expense and will not need help anymore.
Please contact us if you wish to visit him, and give generously to assist with his treatments and recovery. All donations in the USA have tax benefits. Thank you.
