Born in England in 1949, Steve migrated to Australia with his parents and two brothers in 1963. Four years later he joined the Australian Army in 1967, serving in Viet Nam from 1969 to 1971. It was there he met his wife of 44 years, Tuyet. Steve has four children and six grand children.

He served 26 years in the Army and 8 more years out of the Army, until he retired in 2001 due to ill-health. Steve continued his voluntary work with Vietnam Veterans (Australian & Vietnamese) and with the Vietnamese community in Melbourne.

In 2002, Steve and Tuyet (Buddhist name: Nguyên Thiện Hạnh) made their first visit to Quang Duc Monastery and took refuge in Buddhism (with Snr. Ven. Thich Tam Phuong) in 2003.

In 2006, he joined our pilgrimage to Taiwan, India & Nepal, where he said he felt humbled upon meeting His Holiness, The Dalai Lama.

In 2010, after helping to host the Jade Buddha of Universal Peace in 2009, he was asked if he would help to manage some of the USA & Canadian Tour. He & Tuyet spent over 4 months with the Jade Buddha, making many new friends on the journey.

In 2011, Steve travelled with Sangha and congregation members from around the world, to visit Japan, to distributed funds raised for Tsunami victims.

2014 - Steve continues to volunteer as our ‘English Secretary’ (now for almost 9 years) helping with administrative and other work, and is always there helping with our fundraising and special events throughout each year. He considers the GDPT to be part of his own extended family. Steve, helped by his wife Tuyet Lowe  also fundraise each year by selling Tu Vi (Horoscopes) at Tet festivals throughout Melbourne.

There was once the son of a Brahmin (the highest "priestly" caste in India) in the court of King Pasenadi of Kosala, whose name was Ahimsaka. He was sent to Taxila for his studies.

Asoka, grandson of Chandragupta, was one of the first royal patrons of Buddhism. The first was, perhaps, Bimbisara, who lived at the time of the Buddha. Asoka's legend is recorded in a second century book called the "Asokavadana" which was translated into Chinese by Fa-ch'in in 300 A.D.

To the south of Los Angeles is a lively independent suburb named Garden Grove. This small city with a population of around 170,000 is home to the Little Saigon of the Los Angeles region, named for the large number of Vietnamese refugees that immigrated there during the 1970s. Garden Grove has long been known as a conservative bastion with a well-run political machine that kept a tight leash on who ran the city. On 4 November by a margin of just 15 votes, Bao Nguyen beat incumbent mayor Bruce Broadwater to become one of a growing number of Buddhists now engaging in public political service in America.

Congratulatory Message on the occasion of the 7th Buddhist Summit Dear Venerables, I am very pleased to know from Ven. Chandaratana in France that the 7th Buddhist Summit will be held in November 2017 in Sri Lanka, one of the leading countries of Theravada Buddhism, for the purpose of exchanging views about the development of Buddhism around the world. I also received the information that the World Buddhist Summit Organization in Japan had undertaken the enormous task to build up a Nalanda Buddhist University in Japan. This is a great act of merit and indeed good news not only for Japanese Buddhists, but also for Buddhists throughout the world. On behalf of the Vietnamese Buddhists in Germany, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your great achievements and wish all participants of the 7th Buddhist Summit a successful conference and fruitful discussion. May we, Buddhists from the various traditions, always work together for the benefit of all sentien
