Vijayawada | Head of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham Sri Sri Jayendra Saraswati was discharged from a local hospital this morning after his health condition improved.

A team of doctors, under the supervision of NTR University of Health Sciences Vice-Chancellor T Ravi Raju, attended on the pontiff who was admitted to the hospital here three days ago after he complained of breathlessness.

Jayendra Saraswati’s blood sugar and sodium levels dropped significantly, rendering him very weak. A personal physician also came down from Chennai to attend on the seer.
He was placed in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and provided treatment. He showed improvement yesterday, Ravi Raju said, adding as the seer looked normal, he was discharged from the hospital and sent to the ashram here.

The Kanchi seer has been camping in Vijayawada for the last few days, conducting the Chaturmasya Vratam, a four-month religious ritual. He is expected to stay here till September 16 when the ‘Vratam’ concludes.
