Join us this Sunday to celebrate ZaChoeje Rinpoche’s birthday. Everyone is welcome. Bring your family, swim suit, towel and a favorite dish to share for the pot luck. This is an opportunity to spend time with Rinpoche, catch up with friends, meet new ones and enjoy great food as we bid happy returns to Rinpoche and farewell to summer 2014.

In honor of our kind and generous teacher Rinpoche, the children's program scheduled for the morning of the party will meet at the party instead. This will be an auspicious opportunity for the children to be with Rinpoche and the sangha in a happy social event.

We’ll create a beautiful, bright birthday card of work-a-day supporters to present to Rinpoche at his birthday party.

The party will be at a private residence at 1705 N. Forest, Mesa AZ 85203.

You can call 602-799-2497 if you need assistance with directions. Parking on Forest, Ivyglen and Indigo. Look for prayer flags to find the home.

Please RSVP and coordinate your pot-luck dish with Donna Tash at donna@emahofoundation.org. It helps us with the planning.


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!
