I am making a pillow with brush fringe trim like this: http://www.indianproduct.com/tasselnfringe/newfringes/r266.jpg. I was wondering what to do with the two raw ends when they meet so that it won't unravel or be unsightly. Since it's a pillow, it will be visible from both sides.

Thanks for any tips.

I remember reading something about this kind of fringe application in a Singer sewing book once.  I think what they recommended is to start and stop the fringe on a side close to a corner rather than right at a corner, and overlap it just slightly, so there isn't a noticeable gap between the 2 ends.  Hopefully that works for you!
