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.
this week at emaho
with ZaChoeje Rinppoche
Wednesday October 1, 7:00-8:00 pm
Rinpoche will lead us in a meditation on mindfulness, in which we learn to watch our thoughts without judgment or comment. Thus we lay the foundation to go deeper into self discovery without confusion, fear or doubt, developing the awareness that builds a spiritual ground from which to live our lives.
Everyone is welcome to join this meditation. The Wednesday guided meditations are popular among spiritual practitioners of all traditions.
MEDICINE BUDDHA MEDITATION
Thursday October 2, 7:00-8:00 pm
In the words of ZaChoeje Rinpoche: "We all have healing, loving, wisdom, and compassion aspects. Each aspect is shown as a deity. These deities are our own aspects." Through the Medicine Buddha practice we invoke our own healing power and increase our self confidence so that we can bring healing to ourselves and others.
Everyone is welcome to attend this guided meditation.
THE THREE PRINCIPAL ASPECTS OF THE PATH
Workshop with ZaChoeje Rinpoche
Saturday October 4, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The three principal aspects of the path to enlightenment are:
- Determined mind: A strong wish to free oneself from Samsara and to attain Nirvana.
- Altruistic intention: An aspiration for Enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings.
- Wisdom: A supreme understanding of the truth.
In this teaching, Rinpoche will explain, in clear and readily accessible terms, Jamgon Lama Tsongkhapa’s The Three Principal Aspects of the Path, a famed presentation of these three essential topics.
PARKING guidelines: IMPORTANT!
We are asking people not to park along the streets, and not to park in front of the Center, but rather park in the back. Thank you!
