We record with sorrow the passing away of two of our brother-monks.
Swami Ameyatmananda (Surendra), head of Dinajpur centre, Bangladesh, passed away at Arogya Bhavan, Belur Math, on 14 August at 9.30 am due to a massive heart attack. He was 66. He had come to Kolkata in February 2020 for the treatment of his kidney problem and was admitted to Seva Pratishthan for some days. After getting discharged from there, he was recuperating at Arogya Bhavan. Initiated by Swami Vireshwaranandaji Maharaj, he joined the order in 1983 at Medinipur centre and received sannyasa diksha from Swami Bhuteshanandaji Maharaj in 1993. He served at Medinipur centre as an assistant in different departments, at Rahara centre mainly as the headmaster of its high school, and Dinajpur Ashrama as the head of centre. He was unassuming and amiable by nature.
Swami Vibhananda (Ramakrishna of Narainpur centre) expired on 26 August at 12.40 pm, owing to a massive heart attack. He was 67 and had been suffering from diabetes, hypertension and ischemic heart disease for some years. On the fateful day he was going from Narainpur to Raipur by the Ashrama vehicle for his medical check-up and treatment. But he passed away on the way. An initiated disciple of Swami Vireshwaranandaji Maharaj, he joined the order in 1972 at Manasadwip centre and received sannyasa diksha from his Guru in 1984. He served at Manasadwip, Taki, Puri Math, Khetri, Cossipore, Agartala, Chandipur and Narainpur centres. Jovial and sociable by nature, he had a great concern for the welfare of underprivileged people.
