On 21st March, 2009, Sri K. Natesan, who had been bed-ridden
for the past year, was absorbed in Arunachala in his 95th year.
He had been residing in the house of his brother Sri Chandrasekharan,
in Tiruvannamalai and passed away in front of the Asramam gates
while being taken for medical treatment.  He was a devotee of Bhagavan Ramana and had stayed in the Asramam during Bhagavan's days and thereafter. 

Over many decades, he loving collected and preserved the manuscripts of Sri Ganapati Muni, to whom he was greatly devoted,
and was instrumental in their publication of Vasishta Ganapti Muni's Collected Works.  The Eleventh Miscellaneous Writings, was released
before Sri Bhagavan's Samadhi on 23rd February 2009, Maha Sivaratri Day. 

There is one more volume yet to be completed that contains of a
complete index of the previous eleven volumes.  Sri K. Natesan,
had been unable to attend the function due to the infirmities of old
age but felt that with the release of this volume, his life's mission
was complete.
