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.


 ZaChoeje Rinpoche is kindly granting the Vajrapani empowerment (Tib. Chag-Dor Je-Nang). Vajrapani- the Lord of Secret; is the powerful infinite courageous enlightened energy of Enlightenment. This wrathful deity practice eliminates obstacles and destroys negative forces. It helps us invoke our own powerful courageous nature and brings more energy to our spiritual life. 

The blessings bestowed to us during the empowerment enable us to identify with Vajrapani's powerful spiritual strength. 

Through the kindness of our spiritual teacher we become inspired with true instruction on how to explore and utilize this powerful practice. We will come to understand some profound ways to develop compassion and wisdom as well. The ripples from the Vajrapani practice reverberate across the expanse of space benefiting all sentient beings.

All are welcome.  The empowerment may be taken with the intent to practice Vajrapani or may be taken as a special blessing.

Refuge practice is known as the entrance to the spiritual path In Buddhism. 
It invokes the inspiration, admiration and trusting faith in the Three Jewels - the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha.”  ZaChoeje Rinpoche
Entering into the spitural path; The Refuge Practice. 

Refuge (Tib. Kyab-Dro) is the entry and gateway into the spiritual path. In this practice, we learn how to acknowledge our fear of suffering and gain confidence in overcoming it by generating faith in Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. When we take refuge in these Three Jewels, we navigate our spiritual journey to reach our fullest potential- the primordial Buddha nature.  In this workshop, Rinpoche will precisely teach us how to engage into refuge practice step by step.

dü sum sangye guru rinpoche
Embodiment of buddhas of past, present and future, Guru Rinpoche;

new book 2Challenged by disease, we panic. Provoked by enemies, we get angry. Enticed by the allure of what we think we lack, we become lost in distraction and desire. Rather than simply reacting to circumstances, being pushed and pulled by whatever happens in the outer world, we need deep resilience to live a more fulfilling life. This is grounded not just in physical, mental, or emotional strength, but also in inner spiritual strength. In this guide Rinpoche helps us to discover our inner resources and offers advice on practical methods of developing them. His direct and unpretentious words make profound ideas accessible to everyone.

This comes with my sincere prayers that you and your family are staying safe and healthy.  These past 18 months have been difficult and have affected all of us living on this fragile planet.  In these 18 months, some people have lost their lives or have had a family member pass. Every one of us has been impacted to one degree or another. I hope we can see ourselves rounding the corner and finding ourselves headed forward on the road of recovery; physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically and spiritually.
