Annual Fundraiser
A Family Event
Saturday October 11, 5:00 pm-10:00 pm

Please join ZaChoeje Rinpoche and Emaho for our annual fundraiser. This is the year of the Windhorse and in celebration we’re throwing a Western-themed extravaganza: fun for the whole family.

Rinpoche is offering for us a special karma-cleansing puja at the end of the evening.

We've lined up a full evening: BookFair, Silent Auction, Mexican dinner, dessert bar, horse-drawn cart rides, kissing booth (puppy), horseshoes, photo booth, ping-pong, games for kids and adults, miniature horses, rescue donkeys you can feed, multiple raffles and more.

Be aware, the Firedancer Ranch sheriff gets paid to put people in jail!

Our annual silent auction has a beautful Thangka, Dharma items, services, jewelry, gift baskets filled with all kinds of treasures and more. (Great shopping to get you ready for the holidays.)

Come browse new and used books at the book fair tables.

Attire: Diamonds and denim

Registration at the door

Adults $25.00
Couples $45.00
Kids 8 to 17 $15
Kids under 8 free

This is a special social evening where we come together to have fun while we raise needed funding to help Emaho Foundation with the on-going costs of supporting the 
Dharma and Rinpoche, to help with the expenses of running the center and fulfill Emaho’s three-fold mission.


Ongoing construction! Please download this map for detour information.

ZaChoeje Rinpoche: Blessing the animals at Emaho Center

Saturday January 11

Over One Million Mantras collected this year!

Emaho thanks everyone who participated:

Emaho, Bodhi Center, and Santa Fe, NM Center (US Centers) 294.186
Trashi Ganden Choepel Ling (New Zealand Center) 107,597
Japan 50,000
Tibet 1,000,000
India 300,000

TOTAL 1,751,783

The marathon is a global fundraiser in which we raise money to continue the work of ZaChoeje Rinpoche and to support Emaho’s three-fold mission. Most importantly Emaho’s Mantrathon welcomes the new year with wishes for a peaceful year, a year of beneficial resolution to world problems, a year of healing and happiness.

Following Rinpoche's suggestion, Jae-Min will lead the chanting practice sessions for Guru Puja.

Jae-Min learned chants from the late Geshe Pal Tsering who founded Trashi Ganden Choepel Ling in New Zealand, one of Emaho's sister centers.

Learning mostly through observing and copying Geshe-la, Jae-Min first started to lead chants during the times when Geshe-la was travelling.

Jae-Mine will be sharing the tunes used for the Guru Puja, one of the regular practices at Trashi Ganden Choepel Ling.
