Shri 1008 Shri Lakshmi Kaantha Theertharu took sanyaasa from his predecessor Shri 1008 Shri Raamatheertharu and ruled the great Vyasaraja Peeta for 10 years. Sri Lakshmikaantha Theertharu was know for his adherence to ascetic way of life (Sanyasa Ashrama) and generally was considered an ideal sanyasi during his times.

He was known to have spent considerable time in Penukonda taking care of more than 300 Sri Vyasaraja installed Hanumaan idols. History tells us that he was a very good friend and worked closely with his contemporary peetadhipathi of Sri Sripaadaraja Mutt Sri Udhandha Raamachandra Theertharu. Sri Lakshmikaantha Theertharu entered brindavan to the lotus feet for Sri Narayana in the year 1594 AD Shravana Suddha Saptami at Penukonda, Ananthapur Dist, Andhra Pradesh.
