Every day, Emaho supports our spiritual growth by providing tools and techniques passed to us by our kind and generous spiritual teacher, ZaChoeje Rinpoche. To follow in the footsteps of an authentic lineage master is our greatest fortune.  With learning and practice, we become more spiritually aware, become kinder and more compassionate.  With these qualities, we live more peacefully.  ZaChoeje Rinpoche and the Emaho monks have given us an extremely rare gift.

More now than ever, we need your year-end financial support. Closing the center when the pandemic struck has taken a financial toll.  If you are currently an Emaho Benefactor, we are asking you to consider increasing your monthly donation if you are able.  If you aren’t presently a Benefactor, we encourage you to become a regular donor.  If you would like to donate a one-time contribution, no amount is too small.
