Emaho's student-led discussions have been powerful tools of learning for Rinpoche's students. By exploring a topic taken from the teachings of Buddhism, students gain a valuable opportunity to dive deeply into a subject and then share their knowledge with others.

This week: Practicing wisdom, examining how beings and things exist. Please join us for this discussion. There is no moderator for this evening's class.

Thursday September 18, 7:00-8:00 pm

The Tsok offering puja is a ceremony that involves making offerings of food and drink to the Buddha, the Bodhisattvas and our spiritual Gurus in conjunction with prayers, chanting, and meditation. The ceremony is an excellent method of accumulating merit, purifying negativity, and giving and receiving blessings. The Tsok offering is important for renewing commitments and averting obstacles. It is a special method through which we come under the care and guidance of the Dakas and Dakinis who bestow completion stage realizations.

Saturday September 20, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

“Anger is a normal human emotion. It can become destructive when it is not managed well. By applying the internal process of healing anger methods, one can restore the harmony and creativity in one’s life. Life is filled with many unpredictable circumstances. We can't change all of them; yet we can change the way how they affect us.” Zachoeje Rinpoche

Rinpoche will lead this workshop on healing anger techniques that have been taught by legendary Buddhist masters. The workshop will include guided meditations and mantras.



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!
