Welcome to Emaho Foundation

The Sanskrit word emaho (pronounced ay-mah-ho) is an expression of joy and wonder, and an invocation for auspiciousness.

Based in Phoenix, Arizona, Emaho Foundation is a Tibetan Buddhist center serving the greater Phoenix area. Founded in 2001 by ZaChoeje Rinpoche, Emaho is dedicated to sharing Tibetan culture in the West, supporting humanitarian projects worldwide, and assisting with personal spiritual development.

Please note our new location, 11435 North Cave Creek Road, Phoenix. During construction, teachings will take place on the second floor: as you enter the right side of the building, go up the stairs and follow the signs.

NOTE: The Yamantaka meditation scheduled for Monday March 9 has been cancelled in order to allow construction work on the center to be completed.

Please join us Wednesday for a guided meditation on bodhicitta. In this meditation we create within us the wish to become enlightened for the sake of all sentient beings,which is the foundation of compassion. Together, compassion and wisdom lead to full enlightenment.

Everybody is welcome to join this meditation. The Wednesday evening meditations are popular with people of all spiritual traditions.

Thursday March 5, 7:00-8:00 pm

Chenrezig is the bodhisattva of great compassion. Chanting his mantra, Om mani padme hum, removes our selfish attitudes and invokes the spirit of universal compassion for all sentient beings.
