Open to those who have received the empowerment from ZaChoeje Rinpoche or another lineage master.

The practice of Yamantaka, which helps overcome and transform the delusion of anger, belongs to the highest class of Yoga Tantra. Yamantaka, the Diamond Terrifyer, is the wrathful enlightened form of Manjushri. Wrathful  meditation practice is a powerful  practice and skillful means to transform destructive habitual patterns. Yamantaka represents the insight that fully understands the changing character of all impermanent phenomena  as well as their emptiness nature.

Emaho's annual retreat

EMAHO'S ANNUAL RETREAT
May 27, 28 and 29 2016
The retreat will be held at Emaho center

It has 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.
