United Buddhist Order of Penang – UBOP

Spread the Metta

The United Buddhist Order of Penang (UBOP) is a non-profit organization entrusted to manage Dhammayut Forest monasteries, in the tradition of  Phra Ajaan Sao Kantasilo and Phra Ajaan Mun Bhuridatto, located in the state.  Presently, there is a monastery in Penang managed by UBOP, the Vihara BoonRaksa, located in Balik Pulau.  

In addition, UBOP aims to foster unity and fellowship among Buddhist communities of all traditions in Penang, by establishing a network comprising Buddhist societies, ordained members, and the laity, to collectively strengthen and support each other in the cultivation of Dana (generosity), Sila (morality) and Bhavana (meditation).  

There are two categories of UBOP membership, namely Affiliated Members and Individual Members.  We sincerely welcome like-minded organizations, the ordained and lay communities, to join us as we walk together along the Path.
