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.

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.

year end messageDear friends in Dharma, Tashi Delek! 

 I hope this message finds you all well and safe. I am doing well in India. 

2021 is coming to its end. As we look back over the past two years, these have turned out much differently than we could have imagined. For so many of us, the pandemic forced us to keep our physical distance from family, friends and our spiritual community.  It has been challenging, affecting us in many difficult and often tragic ways.

ZaPangthangTashi Delek

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.
