Rinpoche will offer 3 weekend intensives in April and May:

April 16 & 17: 10am - 4pm  
37 Factors of Enlightenment

In Sanskrit it is BodhiPaksha Dharma 37 which means 37 Nirvana's side or direction qualities. 

In the scripture it is explained in seven sets of such qualities of Nirvana. They are referred as complementary facets of the Path to Enlightenment in Buddhism. Understanding these characteristics of Nirvana will help us to bring more positive features in our mind stream and become more open towards Enlightenment. Rinpoche will teach this profound teaching in detail and simple method.

Please mark your calendar for the Saka Dawa celebration on May 21 in the morning.

We will post the exact time soon.

Saka Dawa is the celebration of Buddha Shakyamuni's Birth, Enlightenment and Parinirwana. It is one of the most sacred days for Buddhists. Please join Rinpoche at Emaho for the traditional Saka Dawa ceremony, Bathing the Buddha. Rinpoche will share the meaning and benefits as you participate.

The traditional ceremony will be followed by Tsok. If you would like to help with preparations, please bring flowers for the altar and fruit and sweets for Tsok to show admiration to the Buddha and his teachings while accumulating virtue.

WITH ZACHOEJE RINPOCHE

GoldenTara
Emaho's annual retreat
May 27, 28 and 29 2016
The retreat will be held at Emaho center

It had been asked of Rinpoche to bestow the Golden Tara empowerment.
This will be the first time Rinpoche will offer this auspicious empowerment.

The Yellow-Golden Tara is the Goddess of increasing enrichment and abundance, remover of poverty and bringer of good fortune and generosity.

During the retreat Rinpoche will teach and share with us the profound practice, explaining ways to correctly practice, answering questions and giving us his wise and compassionate guidance.

The empowerment ceremony is a Tibetan Buddhist tradition handed down from Master to Master, going back to Shakyamuni Buddha himself. Having our true lineage master bestow and explain the nuances of this precious Golden Tara empowerment allows us to engage in the practice, benefiting ourselves and others by bringing spiritual and material enrichments.
