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.

this week at emaho

Wednesday October 29, 7:00-8:00 pm

This will be our last meditation at the old address of 4111 E. Phelps Rd. in Phoenix. Saturday we will be at our new location!

Join 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.

Everybody is welcome to join this meditation. The Wednesday guided meditations are popular among spiritual practitioners of all traditions.

Saturday November 1, 7:00-8:00 pm

Note that this meditation will take place at our new location! Click here for address and directions.

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.

Everybody is welcome to attend this guided meditation.

Thanks to everyone!

We thank everyone involved who helped make this year's annual fundraiser a fun success.

From the Firedancer Ranch, donation of auction items and books, the fantastic dinner and luscious dessert, the sheriff taking folks to jail, pony rides, opportunity to feed treats to the miniature horses and full-grown painted horses, mustang and donkeys, to the silent auction, creative ballon artist, festive decorations, and purifying Fire Puja by our kind and venerable teacher, ZaChoeje Rinpoche, the Year of the Wind Horse event was a fantastic success.

Thank you all for your help and support.



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!
