Sensei Ken Madden

It is with sadness that we say farewell to Sensei Ken who has decided to step away from all his activities at the Temple. Sensei Ken has been a long time member and volunteer at the Temple, serving as a Board member, obtaining tokudo, and then serving as a ministerial assistant. He brought many good ideas to the Temple as a Board member and as ministerial assistant. He was always a smiling face on Sunday mornings, handing out the Seiten and greeting people.

In addition to his involvement in the Temple, he worked in outreach, representing Jodo Shinshu Buddhism in interfaith activities and on the U of C campus.

We wish him all the best as he goes forward in his life journey, and we thank him for all the work which he has done for the Temple and the Sangha. Our deepest gratitude to Sensei Ken.

    I remember Sensei Ken. I have only been to one buddhist service in my life, and i remember he taught me how to breathe in and out, and also mentioned Thich Nhat Hanh, who I looked up after and i now think a lot more that our father and mother are with us, which is a bit Christian as well, in my mind
