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.

Sundays at 10:00AM MST, Geshe Lobsang is begenning the second five class series Following the Path of Those Who Have Gone Before. It is not necessary to have attended the first series. Please join us.

Geshe Lobsang has written and published two commentaries on the great Lama Tsongkhapa's excellent teaching, The Great Exploration on the Path to Enlightenment also known as the Lam Rim Chenmo. Geshe will share with us his commentary on what is considered to be one of the most influential Buddhist text. The central focus is the development of bodhichitta. 

In the second part, this five classes series Geshe will share with us how we properly listen to teachings, how to rely on a spiritual master and the the benefits of relying on a true lineage master.

Classes via Zoom begin Sunday, November 1, 10:00AM Mountain Standard Time.

Dispel fireZaChoeje Rinpoche has given to us a mantra to help dispel fire. Please pray for all the sentient beings who have lost their lives to the wildfires, to all sentient beings who have lost home and shelter. May our prayers reach all who are standing on the front lines, the firefighters, the pilots flying into the flames dropping retardant, to the ground support crews, to the volunteers who rally to offer help in a myriad of helpful activities. May our prayers help quickly turn the tide of this destruction.
