By August 23rd the ship had put out to the Red Sea. The Swami suffered seasickness, dizziness, headache, no appetite and vomiting. The symptoms persisted but it was more than seasickness. The pains in his chest made him think he would die at any moment. In two days he suffered two heart attacks. He tolerated the difficulty, meditating on his mission, but after two days of such violent attacks he thought that if another were to come he would certainly not survive.
