When the Dalai Lama came to town a few years ago, my husband and I went to see him. What an experience. To listen to someone so humble, so at peace, so matter of fact, so intelligent was a rare experience.
Brother David Steindl-Rast was with the Dalai Lama that day, on stage, participating in the conversation. My husband recently found this Ted Talk by the brother monk and I thought it was worth sharing.
Do you want to be happy? In order to be happy, you must first be greatful. So simplistic, yet we often forget to appreciate.
