Swami Kirtidanandaji (Srikanta Maharaj) passed away on 9 June 2007 at 5 pm at Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital, Bangalore, owing to cardiac arrest.  He was 82 and had been suffering from various old-age ailments for some years.  An initiated disciple of Swami Virajanandaji Maharaj, he joined the Order at Bangalore Math in 1946 and had Sannyasa from Swami Shankaranandaji Maharaj in 1957.  Besides his joining centre, he served at Colombo (Sri Lanka), Advaita Ashrama (both at Mayavati and its Kolkata branch), Institute of Culture (Kolkata), Chennai Mission Ashrama, Kalimpong (our branch centre at that time) and Saradapitha centres.  He was the editor of Prabuddha Bharata, and head of Aalo (Along), Chennai Students’ Home and Chandigarh centres.  He was also sent to Harare (Zimbabwe) in 1991 to explore the possibility of starting a centre there.  He had been leading a retired life at Ulsoor Math for the last ten years.  The Swami was a scholar and has contributed several articles in our periodicals.  Sri T N Chaturvedi, Governor of Karnataka, and several others came to Ulsoor Math to pay their last respects to him.
