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.

Tuesday January 27, 7:00-8:00 pm

In the words of ZaChoeje Rinpoche: "We all have healing, loving, wisdom, and compassion aspects. Each aspect is shown as a deity. These deities are our own aspects." Through the Medicine Buddha practice we invoke our own healing power and increase our self confidence so that we can bring healing to ourselves and others.

Everybody is welcome to attend this guided meditation.
