My name is Junko Nakagawa I’m in the center of the photo with my Dharma friends from Japan. I am the current Buddhist Temple of Marin board of directors President. The Sangha and I welcome you to join us to study Dharma...a time of reflection, self-examination and gratitude.
I am a life-long Buddhist and attended the Fresno Betsuin until moving to the Bay Area for College. As Vice President, my goal is to spread the Dharma to my local community.
Growing up, my family was always involved in the Seattle Betsuin. When our kids began school in the early 2000’s, my wife and I started attending the Buddhist Temple of Marin. I currently serve as co-recording secretary.
I am a third generation member with my grandfather being one of the founding members of the BTM. It has been so wonderful growing up around such a kind and caring group and I have so many wonderful memories of Dharma plays and Obon Festivals.
I have been attending the Buddhist Temple of Marin since I was a child because my dad was one of the founding members. I stopped attending after high school and restarted attending when my kids were in elementary school to learn about Buddhism.
I am a Chief Accounting Officer with a Real Estate Investment company in San Francisco. I am serving a second term as Treasurer of the BTM board and endeavor to keep the Temple in good financial standing.
Earl grew up near sugarcane fields in Waipahu, on the island of Oahu. He has been a member of the temple since the early 1960’s, when he moved to Tiburon. He’s a regular at temple rummage sales, and serves as an auditor on the board.
I grew up in San Jose as a Buddhist and moved to Marin in the early 90’s where I joined the Buddhist Temple of Marin. As co-auditor I aim to support our temple in the finance department by counting all the eggs.
I have been, or considered myself to be, Buddhist most of my adult life. I joined the Buddhist Temple of Marin in 1985, after my first trip to Asia, where I got to see what it is like to live where being Buddhist is normal. The BTM has been very good to me and to my husband and children.
