Brother David Steindl-Rast Papers

Overview: Brother David Steindl-Rast was born Franz Kuno in Vienna, Austria, in 1926. He discovered The Rule of St. Benedict as a young man, which sent him on a search for an authentic version of Benedictine practice. This search brought him through the Second World War in Vienna, where he earned a Ph.D from the University of Vienna in 1952 and to the Mount Savior Monastery in Elmira, New York, where he became a monk in 1953. Along with his friend Thomas Merton, Brother David is one of the most important figures in the modern interfaith dialogue movement, leaving Mount Savior in the mid-1960s to study Zen Buddhism with Hakuun Yajutami, Shunayu Suzuki, and Soen Nakagawa. He was the first Benedictine to learn directly from Buddhist teachers and received Vatican support for his bridge-building work in 1967. Through Merton, Brother David met Thich Nhat Hanh, who introduced him to the peace movement and grounded Brother David’s spirituality in a tradition of activism. When not in seclusion, Brother David has served as a teacher of contemplative prayer, the intersection of Zen and Catholicism, and gratefulness as a spiritual practice. Through many books and articles, lectures, and residencies in spiritual centers like Tassajara and the Esalen Institute, Brother David has developed an influential philosophy and much of the current popularity of mindfulness and Zen-influenced living and activism owes a debt to his teachings.

The Brother David Steindl-Rast Papers include Brother David’s extensive published and unpublished writings, sermons, memoirs, personal journals, correspondence, photographs, recordings, and videos of his teachings. His papers extend back to his youth in Vienna, documenting his childhood and experience during the war, including a complete run of Die Goldene Wagen, the children’s magazine published by Brother David’s mother Elisabeth Rast.

As a scholar, writer, and social activist, Brother David Steindl-Rast has shared messages of peace, interfaith dialogue, social justice, and environmental stewardship worldwide for more than 50 years in spoken and written word that is both thoughtful and occasionally infused with beauty, wonderment, and wit. His TEDtalk Want to Be Happy? Be Grateful has garnered over 5 million views and thousands of people a day tap into the interactive online community he co-founded, Network for Grateful Living, for information and guidance on the transformative power of gratefulness as a mindfulness practice.

Brother David was born in Vienna, Austria in 1926 as Franz Kuno. He grew up in a small, nearby village in the Alps with his mother and two younger brothers. Living in the Austrian countryside meant David was surrounded by devout Catholic tradition. Religious customs and divine feasts were so abundant that, in his eyes, the elements of nature, culture and religion blended together as one.

As a young boy he attended primary school in a two-room schoolhouse. He then moved to Vienna as a young teenager to attend a progressive boarding school. As the Nazis rose to power, his mother grew concerned for his safety and decided to move to the city with his brothers to be closer to him. In response to the Nazi regime, the boys at the school rebelled primarily by becoming deeply religious.

Unfortunately, a group of David's closest friends were soon drafted into the Nazi army. After only six months, half were killed in battle. Their deaths prompted him to start thinking about his own mortality; David was convinced that he would die young. He was eventually drafted as well, but thankfully was never sent to the front lines. After a year, he abandoned his post and went underground, working to set up refugee camps and to clear rubble from university grounds. Although she was scared for him, David's mother encouraged his activities.

It was during this period that a friend lent him The Rule of Saint Benedict. David was fascinated with its emphasis on humility, introspection and one's sense of community. The Rule inspired him. He imagined being near death, and felt that following this monastic tradition was how he would have liked to have lived. Unfortunately, David knew of no Benedictine monasteries, so he decided to put that dream aside. Instead, he went to study at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. There he learned painting and art restoration.

Vienna had always been a focus of European culture, with a sense of history and human solidarity. During the post-war years, David worked on restoring art that had been damaged during the war. It was then that he became interested in children's art and its relation to primitive art, which in turn led him to begin studying child psychology. In 1952 David earned his PhD at the University of Vienna in experimental psychology, with a minor in anthropology.

After finishing school, Steindl-Rast immigrated to the United States and within months located Mt. Saviour monastery, a Benedictine community on a small farm in upstate New York. He found his home at At Mt. Saviour, where the monks were practicing The Rule in its purest form, joining the order and beginning his monastic life as Brother David in 1953.

During his years of theological and philosophical training and service at Mt. Saviour, Br. David enjoyed communing with the many Protestant and Catholic clergy, intellectuals, and social justice activists who visited the monastery. In 1958-1959, he was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Cornell University where he became the first Roman Catholic to hold the Thorpe Lectureship. He also began to develop an interest in the monastic traditions of other religious traditions, seeing commonalities in monasticism across traditions and incorporating themes of commonality and social justice into his lectures.

His interest in Zen eventually led to a meeting and friendship with Zen monk Tai-Shimano (later known as Eido Shimano Roshi) from Japan. Tai-Shimano was invited to visit with the monks of Mt. Saviour and his theological interchanges with the monks laid the groundwork for revolutionary dialogue between Buddhism and Christianity. In 1966, Mt. Saviour gave Br. David permission to pursue Buddhist-Christian dialogue, receiving Vatican approval in 1967. He is one the first Vatican-sanctioned delegates to participate in Buddhist-Christian dialogue. Br. David went on to study Zen with teachers Hakkuun Yasutani Roshi, Soen Nakagawa Roshi, and Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. Br. David's dialogue with Buddhists produced The Ground We Share: Buddhist and Christian Practice, co-authored with Robert Aitken Roshi.

Br. David met Trappist monk Thomas Merton, a fellow writer, poet, social activist, and proponent of comparative religion and together their theoretical teachings and practice ignited a renewal of religious life. After Merton's untimely death in 1968, Br. David went on to write several explorations of Merton's writings including Thomas Merton: Now at the Crack of Dawn and Recollections of Thomas Merton's Last Days in the West.

In 1968, Br. David co-founded the Center for Spiritual Studies with Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, and Sufi teachers and received the 1975 Martin Buber Award for his achievements in building bridges between religious traditions. He was a leading figure in The House of Prayer Movement, which affected more than 200,000 members of religious orders across the United States and Canada. Since the 1970s, Br. David has been a member of the cultural historian William Irwin Thompson's Lindisfarne Association.

For decades, Br. David divided his time between periods of a hermit's life and extensive travel while delivering lectures and interviews around the world, advocating for international peace, social justice, and environmental responsibility. He has contributed chapters or interviews to a wide range of books and periodicals from the Encyclopedia Americana and The New Catholic Encyclopedia, to the New Age Journal and Parabola magazine.

His writings include Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer, The Music of Silence (with Sharon Lebell), and Belonging to the Universe, winner of the 1992 American Book Award (co-authored with physicist Fritjof Capra). Many of his books and writings have been translated into other languages, including German and Spanish. His most recent books are Words of Common Sense, Deeper than Words: Living the Apostles' Creed, 99 Blessings: An Invitation to Life, and the upcoming The Way of Silence: Engaging the Sacred in Daily Life.

Recently, Br. David co-founded A Network for Grateful Living, a global organization offering online and community-based educational programs and practices dedicated to gratefulness as a transformative influence for individuals and society.

Today Br. David is officially retired and living in Austria, but that has not stopped him from continuing his quest to speak about social justice, bridging cultural communities and interfaith dialogue. He hopes to do as much he can for as long as possible to inspire gratefulness in the lives of all global citizens.

Brother David's Correspondence series spans over five decades and is mostly concentrated in the last thirty years. Family, friends, colleagues and scholars often wrote with news, to seek advice or support, or simply to send warm greetings. Many who followed his teachings of peace and community also sent thanks for his tireless efforts. Correspondence includes letters, many of which contained photos, clippings, drawings, cartoons and other ephemera. Brother David also received an abundance of cards, postcards and faxes. He later began communicating via email, as well.

Brother David clearly showed mindfulness in his writing. He always sent prompt replies, even if his response was a simple note. In reading through this series, one can clearly see the care and dedication with which he maintained relationships, and often his amiable sense of humor.

Brother David communicated with numerous individuals, including religious scholars and academic scientists Robert Aiken (later Aitken Rōshi), Raimundo Panikkar and Yehuda Ben Zion, among others. They frequently exchanged articles and other writings for review, as well as religious and scientific inquiries. He often kept in touch with religious mentors, including Eido Shimano Rōshi of New York Zendo Shobo-Ji, or Temple of True Dharma, and Shunryü Suzuki Rōshi of Tassajara Zen Mountain Center.

Although he spent much of his time in religious seclusion, that did not stop Brother David from following current events. Included in this series are letters to Senators Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer, expressing disapproval for bills they sponsored in Congress. With much of his work and travel focused internationally, Brother David corresponded with national leaders like José María Figueres of Costa Rica. He also connected with celebrities, cultural icons and social activists like Ted Turner and Rosa Parks. David often partnered with foundations, religious centers and retreats like the Esalen Institute and Thanks-Giving Square Foundation, and related materials can be found here.

This series also contains several folders of family correspondence. Over the years, Brother David kept in frequent touch with his mother, Elisabeth Rast, who had been living in New York City since her immigration to the United States. She often recounted her days and sent news about family members and friends. Also of note, David and his brother Max Rast exchanged many letters regarding family genealogy.

Most of the collection was received packed in unsorted boxes, while other materials came already filed. This means that some correspondence was separated and letters may be incomplete. As a general rule, folders are arranged alphabetically by last name or by organization name, with date ranges marked in years. Unfortunately, some names and dates are illegible and noted on folders as "unknown."

Brother David wrote numerous articles for journals and magazines such as New Age, Yoga Journal, and Parabola, and was frequently asked to contribute to religious and scholarly anthologies. As a beloved and respected voice in interfaith dialogue, he was called upon to review books and and write forewords to publications by many other authors. The bulk of this series consists of working drafts, outlines, and review copies Br. David created in the process of preparing these materials for sharing and publication.

This series also includes a selection of handwritten and typed drafts of Br. David's sermons, lectures, and public speeches including his "Meditation on the United Nations," from a gathering of spiritual leaders on the 30th Anniversary of the United Nations (1975).

Drafts of Br. David's popular writings on gratitude include "A Deep Bow" (1967) and "Are You Thankful or Are You Grateful?" (2000).

"Memories from WWII" is Br. David's personal reflection on his youth in Austria during World War II.

Br. David nurtured a lifelong love of art, "Art and the Sacred" (1977), "Artist at the Crux of Community" (1977); and poetry. Some of his original, handwritten poetry is included in this series.

As part of his writing process, Br. David drafted the majority of his work by hand, and had them typewritten for subsequent reviews and submission for publication. In many cases, the series includes the majority of this work product for a given publication.

Also included are articles, associated correspondence, and work product originally written or transcribed into his native German.
