"The condition of Sankaracharya of Kanchi Mutt, Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal admitted to Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre this morning is stable," a medical bulletin from the Sri Ramachandra Medical College and Hospital said.
"The 79-year-old seer is in a private ward and is being treated for exhaustion. He is progressing well," it added.
The Seer was hospitalised yesterday in Nellore district in Andhra Pradesh after he complained of drowsiness and weakness.
Nellore District Superintendent of Police P V S Ramakrishna had said the Seer was hospitalised after a drop in sugar level and that his condition was stable. He said a team of doctors from Chennai, including his personal doctor would do checks and decide whether to shift him to Chennai or not.
Jayendra Saraswati had arrived in Nellore three days ago and was scheduled to perform a religious ritual at Chandramouleeswara Swamy temple in that town today.
