More than 150 people from Houston and the coastal area evacuated to the Barsana Dham, the US ashram of Jagadguru Shree Kripaluji Maharaj.

One of the main principles of our Hindu faith is service,"
said Prabhakari Devi, Vice President of JKP Barsana Dham.

So it's our humble service to open our doors to those fleeing the hurricane to provide a place of shelter in a warm and uplifting environment.

Barsana Dham is a real blessing in this situation. I am very thankful to God being here, safe, and for the holy environment in a difficult situation. Barsana Dham management people, they take so much care. Thanks for all – they give us very good services.
--Vandana, Lake Jackson

We normally go to replenish our soul and mind at Barsana Dham and now we came because of the hurricane. Our children can walk around safely; it is complete package, nourishing our minds, bodies and souls. What more can you ask for?
said Padmini of Lake Jackson. Her 13-year-old daughter added,

I love it here at Barsana Dham and don’t feel like going back.
