Dr Alan Molloy was born in Noumea in 1956. His father, John Molloy, a WW2 Veteran, was an executive with Mobil Oil and travelled extensively. His mother, Dr Maureen Molloy, was a neuropsychologist, specialising in medico-legal consultancy and, who, in her 81st year, completed a Law Degree at Melbourne University. She raised 7 children, one with a severe disability.

Alan excelled at school in both academics and sport. At the age of 13 he started to find it harder and harder to hear what was being said around him. It was at this early stage that it was discovered that he had a congenital hearing condition and that he was about to lose a considerable degree of hearing. However, this was no deterrent to the fire in the belly of this young man to learn, to achieve and to engage in the world around him.

After completing secondary school Alan went on to study Medicine at Melbourne University, completing his degree in 1982. Not long after graduating, he went to work in the Tibetan Refugee settlements in the Himalayas of North India. This early experience in the Himalayas, not only motivated him to pursue further studies in Obstetrics, but it had a life changing impact.

His experiences with the Tibetan Refugee Community led him to develop a passion which he has continued thereafter: Tibetan Buddhism, a longstanding relationship with the Dalai Lama and the pursuit of justice for Tibetans and compassion for all. Alan founded a non Profit company that organises the International Tours of the Dalai Lama to Australia where he also acts as a medical advisor. He has lectured on many aspects of Buddhism and is seen by the Tibetan community as a role model, leader, teacher and someone who can make a difference in the world around him.

Marie Beuzeville Byles was born in 1900 into a Christian family in England. At the age of eleven years, she migrated with her family to Australia. She was one of the first women to graduate in Law from the University of Sydney and certainly the first to set up practice as a solicitor after graduation. At that time, the best that a woman graduate in Law could expect was employment in a Law Office as a solicitor's clerk. This, Marie could not accept so she established her own practice at Eastwood, a Sydney suburb.

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.

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.

Nguyện đem công đức này, trang nghiêm Phật Tịnh Độ, trên đền bốn ơn nặng, dưới cứu khổ ba đường,
nếu có người thấy nghe, đều phát lòng Bồ Đề, hết một báo thân này, sinh qua cõi Cực Lạc.
