Not sure, but E = The
Magho (G=H here) = Chief/Chieftain
E'Magho should mean "The Chief", King Ruler, Leader.
The Big Guy.
"E" is the feminine of "He" (pron. "Hay!"), it means openness,
infinity beyond ideas about that -
Ma and Ho are the two sides of the coin - mother openness and father
active compassion -
they are non-dual in "E"...liberation and form arise together without
problem in wonder.
Means both big guy and big lady...in tantra they called that "Samantra
Bhadra/Bhadri" -
the "All Good Lord/Lady"...likewise as Light (Amithaba), etc... It is
exactlly the same
as the Iranian "Ahura Mazda" - the all good shining heart/mind. It's
where life lights up...
friends, kin, play, peace, all that...the inspiration is "Ma" living
it is "Ho" (laughing in joy and fellowship) - "E!" is the wonder of
life, when all goes well or to hell, we always
have a path, there is no obstacle at all if we stay true.

- n. (oops, sorry if i got a bit wordy...i've been sort of playing a
librarian on these NGs for awhile cuz i know some of the
languages...Tang knows other languages...and so on...
All these cultures are our heritage...where they made sense, where
they were stupid, etc...

"E-Ma-Ho!" is from the Indian Sanskrit via the Tibetan Dzogchen
tradition.
"E" (pron. like long A, like aim, ate,, etc) might have originally
been "He",
as in "He-Vajra" - something like when we say "Oh!!!" with wonder and
surprise.
"Ma" refers to the mother lineage, wisdom, and "Ho" to the hero
(heruka) father
lineage of compassion...The wonder of "E" is that wisdom and
compassion are non-dual.
Like in the Heart Sutra where it says openness is form, form is open,
etc.

So, basically it's a preface that means "Wow! This is wonderful beyond
words!" -
meaning that the words that follow this shouldn't be taken as a dogma,
but as
pointing to the awake heart that is already there, so speak...that the
following mantra
or verses are about what is beyond limiting words. The finger points
at liberation,
so don't fixate on the pointing finger, look beyond to what is
wonderment...

The Heart Sutra says this in the mantra "(Aum) Gate Gate Paragate
Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha"
- gone gone gone-beyond completely-gone awake so-be-it....all our
concepts and words are
left behind in the brilliant flash of just-this (so-to-speak) -
just what is happenning before any idea arises.
- Emaho!
- so if any words and verses follow this "Wow!" they are to seen as
poetic suggestion pointing to immediate experience - something to
explore by being *here*,
not a concept or dogma.

What was the context for this question? or further questions or
comments...chatting is welcome here.

Hi n.,
thank you for your detailed answers.
I just read the word several times and yesterday even in a mail from a friend, so I thought, now I really want to know what it means
exactly.
Bye

Hello Norbu, I really liked your answer on the EMAHO meaning! How did you learn about this terms? I would like to be able to explain something on that way! Do you have an idea of a place , institute, teacher, university.. etc to study on that way?
Thank you very much.
EMAHO!
