Retreat 2021You are invited

Emaho Foundation

Annual 2021 retreat.

May 28th, 29th and 30th live-stream via Zoom. 

Mountain Standard Time

By request, ZaChoeje Rinpoche has graciously agreed to bestow the White Tara Empowerment. Rinpoche will instruct us on how to best practice the White Tara, known as the Wish-fulfilling Wheel (Drolkar Yishin Khorlo).

The empowerment ceremony is a Buddhist tradition handed down from master to student, going back in an unbroken lineage to the historical Shakyamuni Buddha. Receiving the White Tara transmission permits us to engage in the White Tara practice, benefitting ourselves and other sentient beings with spiritual blessings and other enrichments.

During this auspicious workshop, Rinpoche will offer methods and tools to invoke the spiritual energy embodied in the White Tara practice.  He will explain and guide us in the effective practice of the White Tara sadhana.  In Tibetan Buddhism, White Tara is the perfect embodiment of graceful strength, wisdom and purity.  White Tara is the manifestation of the pure compassionate activities of all the Buddhas. White Tara represents the completely purified wind element which when balanced, increases virtuous karma, long life and healing.

This is our second retreat on Zoom and practicing online together. We are fortunate to live in a time when technology allows us to be together across great distances with our kind and generous master, ZaChoeje Rinpoche and the Emaho monks, Geshe Lobsong and Geshe Namgyal while Emaho Center is closed.
