Patrick Kearney is an independent dharma teacher in the lineage of Mah’s? Say?daw. He has trained extensively in the Mah’s? approach to insight meditation, and teaches workshops and retreats in
Australia and overseas. Patrick has a particular interest in the original teachings of the Buddha, before Therav?da or Mah?y?na were ever thought of. He studies P?li, the language of the earliest surviving Indian recension of the Buddha’s teachings, and seeks to bring his understanding of the early texts to the practice of dharma in the contemporary world.
