MVBT President’s Message

 To All MVBT Sangha Members,

Thank you for your support of the Mountain View Buddhist Temple.  2023 was full of highlights as our COVID restrictions loosened and we were able to open up services and activities to everyone. 

In 2023 we:

  • Held Dharma and Special Services in person and on Zoom, including monthly Shotsuki Hoyo, Hanamatsuri, Hoonko, Obon, and Spring and Fall Ohigan. 
  • Gathered for our major events including Chicken Teriyaki Fundraiser, Obon Festival and Bazaar, Sangha Day Picnic and Mochi Tsuki.
  • Introduced the new babies and toddlers at the Hatsumairi (which had not been held since April 2019) and welcomed them to the Sangha.

Again, thank you for your support and dedication to the Mountain View Buddhist Temple.  We are MVBT Strong!

I look forward to seeing everyone’s smiling faces in 2024.


With gassho,

Jean Shimoguchi

2023-2024 MVBT Board President
