We are sorry, but something went wrong!
This was probably an incorrect link and we will do our best to fix it for the future.
It has been requested of Geshe-la to add guided meditations during the day. We are happy to announce that we are adding guided meditations on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am, Friday afternoons at 1:00 pm and Sundays at 10:00 am.
These meditations will be the same as those scheduled for Wednesday night of that week and will rotate like our popular Wednesday night meditations. Please come join Geshe-la for our first daytime Love and Compassion guided meditation July 15 at 10:00 am.
During open Center hours Geshe-la is here to help in any way he can. With his vast knowledge and great kindness he can be instrumental in helping to move spiritual practice along a true course. Come have questions answered or simply come to get away from the bustle. Emaho Center is our spiritual home, please come as often as you have time. Talk with Geshe-la, read a book, sit in the temple, or sit in the community room and just relax. We are open for you to come and enjoy moments of peace in a sometimes stressful world. Emaho Center is open Wednesday through Sunday 10:00 am-12:00 pm, 1:00 pm-3:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you.
This year’s Summer Blast Fund raiser is at the Mountain Club Clubhouse in Prescott. Join us any time between 11 am and 8 pm. There will be a Tibetan Yoga class, meditation led by Geshe Lobsong, and homemade Mexican food. After an afternoon of relaxation, hiking, biking, or exploring downtown Prescott and its annual Street Fair, we will gather for a talk by Geshe, who will describe his harrowing journey from Tibet to India when he was 12 years old.
Finally, we will clean up and depart our summer oasis at around 8 PM.
I hope this message finds you all in very good health and happy. I want to update you with the Nepal earthquake relief project that many of you have contributed to with your generosity to Emaho Foundation. We have sent around 1 million Nepali Rupees (10,000 US $) from Emaho Foundation and one-quarter million NPR (30,0000 Japanese Yen) from Japan.
Pema Kenrab in Kathmandu, Nepal, is our coordinator with this project. He is one of my students from the Drepung Monastery. I asked him to gather a volunteer group and create the Emaho Foundation Care Team.
In the confusion following the aftermath of such widespread destruction, I wanted to be certain your generous donations go into the most remote, hardest hit areas, to those receiving no help.
The Emaho Care Team first did a thorough fact-finding mission on the ground. The aftershocks not only kept people fearful and in shock, but they further eroded already damaged structures, while roads giving access to these remote areas were washed away by slides and mud from early rains.
Our team found remote villages in dire need. In one village of 150 homes, dozens of people had died, many were injured, and all but two homes were entirely flattened. The people were in need of makeshift shelters to keep them from the elements: the monsoons are coming soon. In another village some structures remained standing but this area had run completely out of stored food, their crops ruined.
The Emaho Care Team made their assessment, drew up a plan and set out to help their Nepalese brothers and sisters in most need. Where shelter was needed the team gave out supplies from which to make shelter, where there was no food, the team gave sustainable food items.
It is with my heartfelt appreciation to all of you for your kindness to reach out to help these people going through such pain and suffering. Hundreds of women, men and children who received your kindness are expressing their gratitude and sending their prayers to all of you.
Blessings and prayers,
DEAR DHARMA SISTERS AND BROTHERS
I hope this message finds you all happy and doing your spiritual practice well. I had a wonderful time in India with His Holiness the Dalai Lama's great Lamrim teaching and His Eminence Gaden Tripa Rizong Rinpoche's special Six Yoga of Naropa's lineage instruction.
Its exciting that Geshe’s first language class was such a success. He has received requests for additional classes.
We’re happy to announce that starting Saturday September 12, Geshe is offering three different language programs. The Tibetan language is a syllabary script based on the writing system of the ancient Sanskrit language of India. It was developed for translating precious spiritual texts. Even learning a little Tibetan is beneficial in helping us to better understand our practice of Dharma.
8:30am-9:30am Intermediate Tibetan (Tibetan 2), 8 classes. For those who have taken beginning Tibetan with Geshe or for those of you who have a rudimentary understanding of the written language, please join Geshe continuing your study. In this class you will continue building a basic vocabulary and start to shift from learning the alphabet, spelling and grammar to developing vocabulary and learning the nuances of meaning. The intent of this class is to get the student ready to study Tibetan texts, deepening the student’s understanding and practice. Suggested donation for the Intermediate Tibetan language classes is $108.00
9:30am-10:30am Beginning Tibetan (Tibetan 1), 8 classes. This class is designed for students who have no previous knowledge of classical Tibetan.
The first series will consist of 8 classes. Learning the history of the Tibetan language and being able to recognize and pronounce characters, aids us in realizing the full potential of our Buddhist studies. Included in the curriculum is language history, recognition and pronounciation of the characters of the alphabet, basic grammar, phrase construction and useful vocabulary.
Suggested donation for the first eight class series on Tibetan language is $108.00
For those of you who took the first class, you are welcome to come sit in without a suggested donation.
10:30am-11:30am Learning to write Tibetan script, 8 classes. This class is open to students taking either Beginning Tibetan or Intermediate Tibetan. In this hour Geshe will begin to teach students to write the beautiful Tibetan script. Starting with learning to write the alphabet we gain confidence and will learn to write mantras helping us deepen not only our understanding of the Tibetan language but of our practice of Dharma . 8 class series. Suggested donation for the full class, $50.00
If any of you are interested in one on one classes, please contact Geshe for an appointment.
Hope this message finds you all fine and doing your best to be happy. I am doing fine at the Drepung monastery in South India with my Masters and students.
