Temple of Compassion was founded in 2016, and is located near the lovely town of Brenham, Texas. The ashram consists of 104 acres of beautiful ranch land with a heavily wooded creek running across the back, four ponds, and lush pastures. It is a serene and inviting country environment perfectly suited for meditation and contemplation in the lap of Mother Nature.
The mission of this ashram is Compassion.
Compassion is a state in which we feel in ourselves the pain of others when they are suffering; and not just to feel it, but to give relief; to rejoice in the joy of others, and to not feel jealousy. It is self-sacrifice, sharing, and caring for the good of ourselves, the community, and of the whole world.
Located in the USA Southern Region, Temple of Compassion provides intensive support to seekers in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Tennessee, and is in addition a general place of retreat for spiritual seekers from the US and around the world.
In addition to the residents' quarters, the property has a men's guest house, a women's guest lodge, an outdoor kitchen, a meditation/dining barn, livestock pens and sheds, and two ranch barns. Current construction projects include a cow shed for our divine couple Rishi and Karuna, and a dome that will be used as a meditation hall.
