David Steindl-Rast TED Talk

Want to be Happy? Be Grateful


The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy, says Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar. And happiness, he suggests, is born from gratitude. An inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking where you’re going, and above all, being grateful.

Brother David Steindl-Rast, a Benedictine monk, meditates and writes on “the gentle power” of gratefulness.
