Mahakailasa Ashram (Lalitamba Mandiram) is a sanctuary that offers daily prayer and meditation for peace. We respect each religion as an expression of the one truth that lives in the heart of all beings, a truth that is immanent and transcendent.
The temple is a space of silence. Teachings are offered mainly in writing, through publications of the Sanskrit scriptures and meditation books.
Even as we are a contemplative community focused on prayer, meditation, and study, compassion inspires action. Outreach programs have served thousands in hospitals, prisons, and shelters throughout the United States.
