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

Dr. Allan Molloy KERRY O'BRIEN: As the spiritual leader of a remote Asian nation, the Dalai Lama certainly casts a long shadow. In just two public events in Australia so far, some 30,000 people have flocked to hear the word of the revered head of the Tibetan Buddhist faith. And while controversy surrounds his role as an activist for Tibet's political future, his advice on how to cope with the pressures of modern life certainly has broad appeal. The advice is given with humility and humour, and if the question's too hard, a candid acknowledgment that he doesn't have an answer for everything. Mick Bunworth reports.
