Urban Dharma Penang is a group of practitioners of the Buddhadharma based in Penang but connected to Urban Dharma North Carolina (udharmanc.com) in the United States. Our main objective is to focus on the learning, contemplating and practicing of Buddhadharma under the guidance of Dr. Lye - whom all of us have met and connected with. In particular, we are grounded in the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism but we are fundamentally non-sectarian in nature.
What do we offer now?
The focus is on a modern, simplistic yet holistic approach towards Tibetan Buddhism, its understanding, practice and application in daily life.
We gather every week on Thursday night at 8-9:30 pm at Bodhi Heart Sanctuary, Mt Eskine, Penang to learn, contemplate and practice the Buddhadharma together. Twice a month, wherever in the world Dr. Lye may be, he has agreed to join us via Skype. Our first gathering will be on Nov 26, 2016. Dr. Lye is requiring that all participating members attend all meetings together (unless you do not live in Penang and has made alternate arrangements with Dr. Lye).
