One thought on “David Steindl-Rast on the root of joy”

  1. I came across this monk in 1979 along with many other brilliant thinkers and teachers, in a book called “Earths answer”. It opened my eyes to the truth that there are many many sources of wisdom. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to broaden their vision about consciousness, spirituality and the world.
