The stability estimate of the energy integral established by Danelia, Dochviri and Shashiashvili [1] for the solution of the multidimensional obstacle problem in case of the Laplace operator is generalized to the case of arbitrary linear second order self-adjoint elliptic operator. This estimate asserts that if two obstacle functions are close in the \(L^{∞}\)-norm, then the gradients of the solutions of the corresponding obstacle problem are close in the weighted \(L^{2}\) -norm.
