Meet the Miroku Members – July 2021

 Hi Sangha,

My name is Jeremy Tao and I am 12 years old.  In the middle of August I will start seventh grade at Peterson Middle School.  My parents are Janell and Ryan Tao and my brother, Garrett, will be in 5th grade.

I like to build with Legos and play video games, basketball and baseball.  I play shortstop and second base for the Sunnyvale Metro Little League.  My family also just got a ping-pong table and so far, I’m the champion of the family.

I started attending Sunday Service when I was 18 months old, but didn’t start preschool until I was 3 years old.  My favorite Temple event is Mochitsuki because the turkey curry is the best.  The thing I miss the most about the Temple is the french fries at Obon.


Hi Sangha,

My name is Bradley Aquino. I am in 8th grade, I am 14 years old, and I live with my Mom, Dad, Younger Sister, Older Brother, Dog and Obachan.  Some of my interests include lacrosse, football, video games, talking to friends and Lego.  I’ve been going to the Mountain View Buddhist Temple ever since I was born.  My favorite event at Mountain View Buddhist Temple would be Obon, I would always look forward to when July rolled around because that would mean that Obon would be just around the corner.  One thing that I miss about not going to the Temple in person is that I don’t get to see all my family friends, and hang out with them after Dharma School.
