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.

Mantra, or chanting, plays a vital role in Tibetan Buddhism.  The specific sounds recited during our daily meditation practice were designed by the masters to help purify and calm our minds, allowing us to enrich and deepen our meditation.

Mudra, or hand gestures, were taught to accompany our practice by influencing minute positive changes in the body that support overall good health.  Mudras help bridge the body and mind--stimulating our vital energies.
